Last week, i was one of four authors to speak at the Spring Festival of Children’s Literature in Frostburg, MD. What a wonderful show, you guys! Thank you to everyone at Frostburg University for hosting me and showing me a splendid time. I love hanging with teachers and librarians. They are my favorites.
Here are some memories from the trip!
Frostburg is a charming little mountain town in western Maryland. We stayed in this old hotel called the Gunter. It had a jail, a doll room, and a Shirley Temple room inside there. A strange little place that i liked very much.
Here is the auditorium where the talks went down. All the projects from local classrooms lined the walls and the stage. it was crazy heartwarming.
Look at these amazing Hug Machine projects!! My heart melted all over the ground.
On one of the mornings, i spoke to a couple 3rd grade classes at the La Vale Library. They were great!
At the end of our time together, they presented me with a little book they all made together about their own Hug Machine concepts. I couldn’t believe it. You can see on my face here, that i could not believe it.
