As you can see, I have not been doing very many school visits in the last year. It’s kind of hard to write & illustrate books and go on the road to talk about them at the same time…
I have 5 new books coming out during the 2007-2008 school year, so get ready! Of course I will post here as soon as these new books are available.
Well, today I had a chance to visit with the teachers at Wilson School after classes. I talked with them about how I got started making children’s books and the new books I have been working on. I also brought a few original acrylic paintings on canvas to show them. That’s the nice thing about visiting local schools here in St. Louis – I can bring out originial pieces on occasion.
It was a good surprise to find out that Christina Hoerner is now teaching science at Wilson. We went to high school and college together, and I hadn’t seen her in a long time.
I look forward to speaking with the Wilson students next week!
