A couple days ago, I did my first Surviving Bear Island school visits. I visited two schools where I was student back in the 70’s, John Marshall and Andrew Jackson Intermediate Schools for grades five to eight.
I felt very taken care of at both schools. The visits were set up on really short notice and the school staff did a fantastic job of being prepared. And the kids were just awesome and full of questions about writing and about Alaska.
Later that day, I got my first letter from a student who had read my book.
The next night I went out to dinner with my high school English Teacher and signed books for him and for the school library.
If you’d like to schedule a school visit or book signing check out my schedule and contact information by clicking here.
On the 25th I’ll be celebrating the release of Surviving Bear Island and will be giving away ten copies of my book!! One of them could be yours!!
I hope you’ll stop by then for a chance to win!!!
