I had a great visit at Nashville's Cameron Middle School last Friday. When I got to the library, I was greeted by this picture, drawn by a very talented sixth-grader named Jorge and colored by another sixth-grader named Rita. There is some question as to whether it's a picture of Grady from The Charlatan's Boy or a picture of me. I would have guessed Grady, but as somebody pointed out, it has my name right there.
Below is a picture of the audience, who were extremely attentive and asked very smart questions. Many thanks to librarian Gina Wiser, literacy coach Sandy Smith-Hitt, and principal Chris Hames for their hospitality. They're doing great things with some great kids at Cameron.
