Read by the Sea

Jill MacLean Author of Fiction for Children and TeensWell, revising pretty well took care of July.

Except for READ BY THE SEA.

This is an annual festival in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, and I’ve been asked to participate as one of the two children’s writers, along with Frieda Wishinsky. It was really fun! A truly wonderful group of volunteers and committee members. A gorgeous setting. Sunshine. Sunshine. Sunshine. And books. And readers of books.

What more can I ask?

I read and did a workshop (How Not to be Boring – I hope I succeeded) on the Saturday morning; then in the afternoon had the chance to hear the adult readers, and to meet them at meals organized by the committee members.

Thank you, Read by the Sea.
