Belated Post: Visiting the Eastern Shore in Maryland

In April, I was also fortunate to spend a week in Maryland, visiting schools and libraries on the Eastern Shore. I was  happy to go as I last year I had to drop out as I got a little busy--needless to say, I'm was very glad to be reinvited!

And it was a fun week!  Hosted by famous blogger librarians Sam and Rachel, we enjoyed all the warm welcomes:

One school welcomed me with  a quilt  inspired by the descriptive language from Where the Mountain Meets the Moon:

Here's a better picture of it! Luckily we drove to Maryland so we could take it back:

And after a whole week, I got very good at doing my Starry River of the Sky presentation:

As well as teaching students how to draw a tiger:

And I wasn't the only one getting more skillful! Rain Dragon really started to master the whole walking thing:

But, of course, the best part was meeting readers, all of whom seemed to have really enjoyed my books!

Thanks so much Sam and Rachel! Thanks so much Eastern Shore Libraries!
