Speaking to K-2 students today in the media center, Helen Lester shared her journey as the author of the Tacky the Penguin and Wodney Wat series along with many other titles. She encouraged students to write down their ideas and save everything. Thank you to Conn PTA for funding her visit. Also thank you to Quail Ridge Books and Rachel Pair at Courtyard-Crabtree for their support.
In addition to reading, I love to play competitive tennis; hike & camp in the mountains; garden and create outdoor art; walk Mocha, my chocolate lab; visit my son in NYC; and learn new things!
