At Peachland I did a small writing workshop for about 30 hand-picked 3rd-6th graders.
A successful school visit requires a lot of work on the part of many people.
At Peachland, I have the wonderful Dianne White and Cheryl Phillips to thank.
At The Willows, the remarkable librarian, Cathy Leverkus, and her assistant Stephanie Vahedi jumped through hoops to make everything run smoothly. They were terrific.
I also want to thank Julia Pistor for her help in setting everything up at The Willows. What a sweetie!
And nothing would have gone at all, well or otherwise, without the enormous help of my media escort, Lisa Becker. She went above and beyond the call of duty.
P.S. The day before I came home I wandered through Beverly Center, and found the most adorable carry-on bag from Kipling (which I have to love because Rudyard Kipling is one of my heroes). When I saw the color, I had to have it. So now, I’m ready for my next journey . . .
