About a month ago Stan and I had the honor of presenting to Ann Park’s 5th grade class at Bridges Academy at Melrose in East Oakland. The students were attentive and asked us great questions. It’s been one of our favorite school visits so far.
And yesterday we got the most amazing packet with a card and notes of appreciation from ALL of the students – one for me and one for Stan. This is a school that doesn’t have a big active PTA to fund a library, and they have had few, if any, school visits. These kids deserve to have authors visit their school too! So much thanks to teacher Ann Park, and to Amy Cheney who heads the Oakland Public School libraries, for making it happen.
