One of the pleasures of summertime is loading up on books at the library and basically eating them. Some of my favorite reads this summer: Hattie books by Kirby Larsen; Gordon Korman -- I particularly enjoyed Schooled; lots of Jerry Spinelli, Richard Peck, Robin LaFevers, Neil Gaiman, Margaret Peterson Haddix. Oh, and the new book by Ruta Sepetys. I should keep a reading log because now I'm forgetting some of the wonderful authors I read. But you can see that almost all of it is children's literature. The adult fare was all nonfiction.
I was picking up some books at the library and the librarian alerted me to my books on display. The others in the series were checked out! Always such a thrill. Anyway, we got to chatting about our basil and tomatoes, and before I knew it, I was volunteering to do a little workshop on gardening. Here's the blurb:
Coming up next month is a special program with the children’s author, Vijaya Bodach. You will learn to grow a pizza and to build a sunflower house!
