What a busy week!

I have a busy week! This Wednesday and Thursday, I have the honor of being a visiting author in the Joliet, Illinois School District, as part of their "Reading Week" Celebration. I'll be speaking to groups of students in grades K-2 and 3-5 at four different schools. Should be fun!

Then on Saturday, May 16, I'll be teaching "Turning Life into Fiction," a new all-day workshop for adults at the Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook, IL. If you'd like to attend, there are still a few seats left. For registration information, see the Programs page of this website.  Read More
