TD Children’s Book Tour

April was a BUSY month. With Nix still very much present, I had to also pay considerable attention to the upcoming TD Children’s Book Tour. I’ll be flying to Toronto, then travelling to London, which will be my base for most of the week.  From May 2-5 I’ll be seeing about 630 students (I counted) in grades 4-6 and another 225 in grades 7-8.

I’m an introvert.  Do you know what introvert means? Someone who likes small groups, as opposed to large groups.  Very small groups.

Sixteen presentations in five days in lots of different schools.  Wish me luck, stamina, and a very active sense of humour!!  Having said all that, I plan to have fun. I’ll be meeting so many wonderful kids, teachers and librarians, and I’ll be visiting a part of Ontario where I’ve never been before.

My thanks, in particular, to Monica Winkler, my coordinator, who made all the arrangements.
