Want to let you know that I’ll be signing books at Nobbies Party SuperStore in June. I’ve got four dates so far: June 3rd and 4th, and June 10th and 11th. A shout out to Store Manager, Sara Gist for the hosting events. The store location is 9999 University Avenue, Clive, IA. I’ll keep the reminders coming.
A Birthday Story, my children’s book is selling. You should get your copy from Amazon.com, Barnes & Nobles.com, xlibris.com or in Des Moines, the independent book seller, Beaverdale Books on Beaverdale Avenue.
I enjoyed a Fingerman Lecture earlier today. The lecture was given by Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole. I tried to put her picture into today’s post but the computer wouldn’t let me. The lecture at the Des Moines Art Center, Levitt Auditorium, was entitled “My Love of Art: A Lifelong Journey.” A great way to spend a cold, rainy Sunday afternoon. If she is speaking in your area go see her. Her images/photos, stories of her family in the south, her work on the African continent, her academic work, and work as Director of the Smithsonian was engaging an interesting.
Here are the books for this week:
Sharing the Blue Crayon: How to Integrate Social, Emotional, and Literacy Learning by Mary Anne Buckley, for Grades K-3
Teaching Globally: Reading the World through Literature, Edited by Kathy G. Short, Deanna Day, and Jean Schroeder, for Grades K-6
