SOBO SLEUTH Authors visit South Boston Elementary School

On August 18th we visited fourth and fifth graders at South Boston Elementary School for a workshop about the process of writing SOBO SLEUTH. Their librarian Nancy Little invited us to visit as part of their back to school RIF program. The students were a wonderful audience and asked us excellent questions. Students particularly connected with Joel and his encouragement to persevere in their journey as readers. Ms. Little reported that many children were encouraged in their own writing and are showing her many stories. Several children suggested that we make our book into a children's play.....stay tuned on that one! We are so pleased to support the terrific teachers at this school. Joel states that his visit to South Boston Elementary school was one of the highlights of his summer vacation in South Boston.

I will be back in South Boston on October 1 st. to do a workshop for the third, fourth, and fifth graders at Cluster Springs Elementary School! Joel will make a special appearance via a prerecorded message!
