From the Office of the Future of Reading

I just now heard from a school in Kentucky that, thanks to encouragement from the wonder woman who organizes my school appearances, Michele Kophs, has received a Target grant which will pay for nearly the entire cost of my appearance*.

This is the second time Target has helped a school that's invited me to visit. (It's not that Target thinks I'm hot stuff or anything; they would support other author appearances this way, too!). So I encourage you to apply, too. Here's the link.

Now, I'm off to enjoy the New Year at Shangri-Lar. See you in 2014!

My happy place.

*Please note: this school contacted me before I took a leave of absence from doing school visits. Officially, I'm not doing them in this school year.


  1. That is terrific. Love that Target is supporting events like author visits. Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a nice thing to learn about Target. I like to shop there, now I'll doubly enjoy shopping there. Best wishes for a Happy New Year.
