Just had the most delightful Skype visit with students in Manning, South Carolina. Yes, Manning, the hometown of Peggy Parish, creator of Amelia Bedelia.

But what I want to share is the teacher's plea to continue skyping. The teacher, a natural who obviously does a fabulous job, has been told by authors that they don't like to Skype.

After my visit, she wrote some lovely words about me, but here's the important part: Please continue Skyping! Our students may never experience  talking to a published author without this kind of opportunity as we are unable to afford the fees that are incurred when an author has to travel to be here. It is truly invaluable. I appreciate your willingness to participate in this type of experience to expose our students to the wonderful world of reading and writing. I am confident that we made a memory for them that will have an impact for years to come! 

Come along, authors, let's make some memories.
