On Monday of this week, I had the opportunity to speak to a 5th grade class in Sterling, Illinois. This was a perfect age group for my action-adventure & mystery books for boys.
The visit resulted in a front page story in the local newspaper with a full color photograph. The story continued on a second page. If you'd like to see the story and photos, the following link takes you to a front page story, in the regular newspaper, serving Sterling, Dixon, and Rock Falls, IL. This is the online version of the same papers.
Make sure to select September 18 if you try this later than the 18th.
First scroll down to the second half of the front page. Then, in the pulldown menu, select "A04 - Local" for the second part and another picture.
My visit was well timed because there was a Scholastic Book Fair going on at the same time.
