Appleton, Day 3

Short entry because my ride is picking me up at 6:15 tomorrow and I’m beat.

This whole week has been wonderful, but to be honest, my eyes are not focussing right now. Feels like one of those nights when I’m going to fall asleep with my face on the keyboard.

One last photo before I go.

    Thank you for coming to speak to us at Appleton West. When I read Speak, I could really relate to Melinda in terms of isolation and depression. I thought I was the only person who felt alone and depressed. But then you came to talk to us and I could TOTALLY relate to you and now I know that I’m not alone and I just might get through these years alright…thanks again so much…you have deeply touched me and I will continue to read your books. 🙂

    Hey thank you soooo much for coming to talk with us at Appleton West it was a lot of fun! Before the program started i thought that it would be kind of boring like most school assemblys are but when you got up and started talking i automatically paid attention it was so cool. I was laughing and everything it was really cool. Thank you also for the group chat after the assembly it was fun to learn more about the book and how you came about writing it. so Thank you for coming to West it was a lot of fun! I hope that some day you can come visit our little city again.
