Just got back from a trip to Alamogordo, New Mexico where I did school visits at four schools and then spoke at the awards ceremony at the Young Writers Conference. The kids were prepared and full of questions, the hosts were generous and a hoot, and I got to experience a new part of our country.
At the awards ceremony, the high school was decorated with artwork by the kids inspired by my book, An Eye for Color: The Story of Josef Albers.
I even found a dinosaur behind the high school who wanted some tummy rubs.
Thanks for the wonderful visit! I hope I inspired your kids to write more. They inspired me!
