My chaps are packed. I'm ready to go.
This time tomorrow, Suzanne Morgan Williams
, our nameless skunk mascot and I will be on the road again!
After our writers-in-residence literacy celebration in May, we thought we'd have to wait longer for a return invitation to the super Nevada town of Hawthorne, but we are delighted to be returning for Mineral County Library's Summer Reading program.
The theme for the summer is "Digging into the Past," so Suzy and I will tell stories and give tips from our own fiction, non-fiction, contemporary and historical research. Don't be surprised if those stories include bucking bulls and broncs!
younger reader/writers will join us for "I See By Your Outfit" & fun research tips which include chaps and a fur-lined parka. Hmmm....
, teens can learn how to give their school and personal writing texture. Together, we'll dig into Internet, Interview and "Getting Your Hands Dirty" research.
We're excited to see some familiar faces again, and meet some new reader/writers. And I'd be fibbing if I didn't saw we are looking forward to the homemade Mexican food we've been promised, too!
Since you can't all be there, here are some snaps from our last journey!
