|And the 5th test- Will it be FUN?|
And a snowstorm today.
The good news is, I found the place. The better news, I got there alive and without an accident, because near misses do not count, even when an attempt to stop sends you sliding halfway into another lane and leaves you (and probably the other driver too) on the verge of a heart attack.
Because of the topic, I had a representative from a local adult literacy group in the audience, and several teachers. I gave away complimentary copies of both Pull and Die Trying to them. The adult literacy specialist present thought the short stories in Die Trying would appeal to her readers.
Best of all, they are talking about having me back again. Next time in the fall.
I would love to hear if any of you have experiences with reluctant readers, or ideas about turning them on to books.
