Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Sleeping Bear Press at a Truly Great School

Last week I joined in the Sleeping Bear Press 20thanniversary celebration by taking part in a mini-visit to St. Gregory the Great Catholic School in San Antonio.

The students and staff were incredibly kind and welcoming!  After the nicest of introductions by Ms. Rosales, I shared a photo of a book I wrote in first grade and read my historical fiction picture book WELCOME TO AMERICA, CHAMP! (published by Sleeping Bear Press). Then students had some very interesting questions – “Do you get help writing your books?” “Do you tell the illustrator how you want the pictures to be?” I could tell that they put a lot of thought into these questions!

To mark their 20th anniversary, Sleeping Bear Press donated 20 new books to the school.

Oh, and the school gave me some fun Fiesta items, including this bright and festive Fiesta medal!

Thank you to the students and staff at St. Gregory the Great and to Sleeping Bear Press for a truly amazing day!
