This is going to be an odds and ends day. Work continues on the current non-fiction project that is due at the end of the month. (Oh, no, I’m not nervous about making that deadline. Not at all. Nope, not me…) I’m reading another book by David Hackett Fischer, whom I adore because of his source citations.
Also need to clean the apartment, pack, and do all the other necessary stuff so I can leave tomorrow for the trip up North. I’ll be visiting schools in Central New York from 2/11 – 2/18.
Speaking of schedules, we’ve started to look toward the fall and beyond. I set aside four weeks each spring and each fall for school visits. The only time I can visit schools is during those weeks. I am open to speaking at conferences year-round, because they tend to fall on the weekends.
This is how the schedule is shaping up. Note – there are some regions listed as Tentative and Long-Term. If you are interested in booking me and you are in one of those regions, those are the dates you should consider.
Commitments for Fall ’05:
10/7-10/8 Rocky Mountain Children’s Lit Conference, Greely, CO
10/14 Florida Council of Teachers of English Conference
11/17-11/22 National Council of Teachers of English Conference & ALAN Workshops, Pittsburgh, PA
Tentative for Fall ’05:
10/31 – 11/11 open for schools anywhere
Tentative for Spring ’06
3/20-3/31 Western States
4/3-4/7 Central New York
4/10-4/14 open for schools anywhere
Spring 2007 – might be heading to Poland and Europe for school visits. Yeah, I find it hard to believe, too.
We’ve posted detailed information about my visits on the website. If you are interested in having me speak at your school or conference, please contact Sarah Henry, aka The Scheduling Goddess: firstname.lastname@example.org.
