Every author visit I make to schools around the country is different. Schools have distinct personalities, and my presentation is redirected by local influences. One school might put up posters and have a Cheesie Mack Day. Another might get me interviewed by the local newspaper. But for every school, in this time of tight budgets and difficult curricular challenges, my visit is always a big deal…and I am greeted with great excitement.
Some things—no matter which school—are universal.
And then there’s the nearly obligatory mac ‘n’ cheese luncheon. The kids love it, and I love their gusto.
I often ask for a salad.
