Dunning Elementary, Framingham, MA

On 4/26/16, I made my first trip in several years to the state where I colleged, Massachusetts. Huge props to teacher Michael Pearson for taking on the task of organizing an author visit, something he'd not done before.

The kids were a lot of fun in both the assemblies and the writing workshops. Thank you also to Mike's colleagues, who supported him in bringing in an author that some had not heard of. Under any circumstance it takes conviction to champion an author visit but especially a) when you have never heard the author present and b) when your school doesn't regularly host authors.

Hope for more funning at Dunning before long.
