The school year is under way, and I've been thinking about whether there's anything more I should be doing to try to snag some school visits. Work has pretty much dried up since the spring of 2003, I think it was. Geez, it was the high-point of my career as a speaker, and I can't even remember when it happened.
Anyway, I was interested to read Cynthia Leitch Smith's two-part interview with Toni Buzzeo on that very subject. Toni Buzzeo has been known in the New England Society of Book Writers and Illustrators for her interest in school visits. In fact, I heard her speak at the only NESCBWI conference I ever attended. I also have her book Terrific Connections with Authors, Illustrators, and Storytellers. Which I think I finished reading.
