One of the books we’re reading for the Reader’s Rally team this year is by Barbara O’Connor. I’ve actually met her before at children’s literature conferences so I contacted her and we’re going to get to do a Skype visit in December!
How cool is that? So I got extra copies of that book for the team (so they can read it NEXT) and checked out what we have of her other books and am asking them to read at least one other by her (my favorite is How to Steal a Dog). Then I’ll give them some interviews of her so they can get to know her as well as her work and come up with good questions for the meeting.
Should be fun!
