on my desk monday

Name tags for the whole family, courtesy of the wonderful coordinators of the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Festival which I spoke at on last Friday. More on that later...the blog has much to catch up on but more immediate matters must be attended to first (unpacking, apartment staging and getting my taxes out!).

Ha ha well it makes up for tornado evacuation in stairwell and women who find it acceptable to peer into a stroller of a sleeping child and loudly fawn over her! Those of us WITH KIDS nearby emphathized!

Mrs. Lin,
I am not certain this is the right place for this request, but your web site said to contact you here...

My name is Chap Shearouse. I am in a Middle Grades Education cohort at the University of North Georgia. Our group has chosen Where the Mountain Meets the Moon as our Novel Study focus for the semester. I personally recommended the book to my team because I was so intrigued by the story and moved by the universal theme of seeking contentment in what we have rather than lamenting what we lack. My Undergraduate degree was in English Lit., and as an avid reader I have found few narratives that so honestly and gracefully weave morals, adventure, and humanity into the magnificent tapestry that you have created.

I know it's a long shot, but we are presenting our study of the novel to our peers on Thursday, April 25th and I would like to see if you would consider taking part in a Skype interview with our class? We would be very respectful of your time, and grateful for any assistance you can lend. If an in person conversation is not possible, is there any way to submit some questions to you?

Thank you in advance for your consideration, I appreciate your time and look forward to your response.
