As happy as I am to be writing full time, I miss spending regular time with students. I hope as my book makes it into the world I’ll have opportunities to talk with kids during school visits, library talks, and book club discussions.
If you are a part of a children’s book club (or know anyone who might be interested), I’d love to work with your group. If you’re local (somewhere in New Mexico), I’ll make every effort to meet with your readers in person. If you’re anywhere else, I’d be happy to Skype with you during your meeting. All I ask is that your kids have read my book beforehand.
If you’re a teacher, go to my Skype an Author page to learn more about classroom or book club discussions. As part of Kate Messner’s Author Skype Tour, I’m also willing to give a few copies of my book away for those interested in a virtual author chat. Stop by to learn more!
And… I am donating to one lucky school or reading circle a May B. Book Club Kit. The kit would include the following:
- 10 copies of May B.
- discussion questions
- background on the storyline and setting
- copies of a literature-based assignment I’ve created called Where in the World Are We Reading (used successfully during my years teaching)
- ideas for social studies and poetry tie-ins (if applicable)
- CD with book trailer
- interactive Skype visit
All groups to enter will receive bookmarks for their readers.
If you or someone you know might be interested in entering to win (grades four through eighth qualify), please contact me at carolineATcarolinestarrroseDOTcom. Tell me about your readers and why you’d like to win. That’s it!
This contest is open internationally and will close November 1, 2011.
Please spread the word!
