I love school visits. I mean, I really love them. But if the school is in Saskatchewan or Pocatello, Idaho, say, it’s kind of hard for me to get there and back in the five working hours I have each day. Which is why a particularly resourceful Ohio teen librarian proposed that I Skype with her reading club instead. And a teacher in Glencoe, Missouri, asked me to chat with her middle school reading club.
Well, you know what? Skyping rocks! (And the commute time is significantly shorter.)
All of which gave me an idea . . .
If your class or book club (whether teen or adult; school, library, or private) is reading Five Flavors of Dumb, and you’d like to discuss it with me, please drop me an email and we’ll set something up. There’s no cost — I’m happy to do it free — and as long as you have a couple of scheduling options, we’ll find a mutually acceptable time for sure.
All I ask is that participants have read at least a few chapters of the novel. Otherwise, my responses may not make much sense. Better still, give readers the chance to read the whole thing. That way, the conversation won’t become a stream of spoilers!
