Elgin School Visits

Yesterday I visited two wonderful schools in Elgin, TX and had a blast! 

I facilitated five comic presentations to 3rd-8th graders, sharing insights from my comics and publishing journey. After that, I provided a step-by-step tutorial on creating graphic novels with examples from my GN Miss Quinces. During the graphic novel lesson, the students and I collaborated on crafting a short comic together, resulting in a fun and engaging experience! Kids are so dang creative!😤👍

TLA - Texas Library Association (Austin, TX)

Hey Austin, TX! I’m so excited to be a part of TLA this year especially as a featured guest for The Spirit of Texas (SPOT) Reading Program! SPOT helps encourage a greater understanding of what it means to be a Texan, and to develop an appreciation for the literary works of and about Texas and Texans. 

And it’s a great recommended reading list developed by public and school librarians from the Young Adult Round Table (YART). The purpose of the list is to encourage youths in grades 6-12 to explore a variety of current, quality books from Texas authors and illustrators, develop critical reading skills, and to encourage greater interaction between Texas authors and illustrators, Texas librarians, and Texas youth.
