I’m so honored that I’ll be an invited author at the Virginia Festival of the Book in March in Charlottesville, Virginia. This is a special honor for me because I went to graduate school at UVA, and this city holds a special place in my heart. It’s also where I began to dream, again, of becoming an author.
Over the course of two days, I’m visiting 7 elementary and middle schools to talk to students, teachers, and staff about writing, books, and storytelling. Here’s where I’ll be:
After that, I’ll be attending events associated with the book festival. The schedule is still TBD and I’ll let you know more as soon as I have that information. I’m looking forward to meeting readers and authors, and to revisiting a city that made me the person I am today.
