Renée Watson, Caroline Kennedy, and DreamYard

Posted on May 13, 2010 in Art, Books, Illustration, Teachers Rock!, Uncategorized

Renée Watson, author of my latest book, A PLACE WHERE HURRICANES HAPPEN is hosting a workshop for teachers on May 24th at DreamYard Project in the Bronx. It will be a great opportunity for teachers to learn how to get and use the book in their classrooms. Please RSVP to Ellen Hagan at

Caroline Kennedy has given us a wonderful quote for the back cover of the book and has really gotten behind the project. She purchased 200 advanced copies and donated them at a fundraiser for DreamYard. The book pubs in less than a month! I am on pins and needles. Book launch anyone? 🙂
