When I arrived at Gilmer Elementary in Gilmer, TX, I received one of my biggest welcomes ever! Not only were there cool welcome banners everywhere but also student versions of all my book covers all over the school! I couldn’t get pictures of all of them but I’ve added a few at the end of this post to show what I’m talking about!
After my first presentation, I signed some books in the library, checked out more of my book cover-inspired art, and ate lunch with nine GES talented young writers. I enjoyed answering their questions and listening to some excerpts of their work. I had a fun time: Parker, Allison, Sophia, Angel, Sarah, Chloe, Kaitlyn, Emma, and Lela!
Thanks to Mr. Wink for the great introductions. Thanks to Mrs. Broadwell and Mrs. Meza’s 3rd grade classes for all the kind letters they wrote BEFORE I arrived. Thanks to Mrs. Curry and Mrs. High for the cool book cover art project. A big thanks to Mrs. Reneau for inviting me, the tasty lunch, and the great gift bag! And a super-big thanks to ALL the Gilmer Elemenatry Buckeyes for the great day and warmest welcome I’ve received in a long time!
