School Visit in DC

The Open Book Foundation, a foundation dedicated to promote literacy among disadvantaged children and teens in Washington, DC, invited me to visit a local school during my trip there to the National Book Festival. Luckily, it fit in the schedule and I did my first school visit of the year. 

all the photos were taken from the Open Book Foundation--that is why they are so nice!

It was at the Washington Middle School for Girls and it was lovely! The girls were so attentive while I gave my presentation:

and taught them how to draw a tiger:

And when I went to sign books, an old friend visited:

do you see Pocket Pacy? This is the Pocket Pacy that traveled to Barcelona (and even more places, which I will soon post!) It was fun to meet up with her again!
 But I have to admit, I might have enjoyed meeting some new friends even more:

I think this might be my favorite school visit photo ever

Thanks so much Open Book Foundation! Thanks so much Washington Middle School!

Grace! Thank you, thank you, thank you! It was amazing to see you in action with that special group of students. And thanks for taking the time to share the word about An Open Book, too.

P.S. Here are a few more Pocket Pacy pics. Thanks for her "make-over"!
