Yesterday I had the pleasure of being a presenter at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School's annual Ultimate Author Day (UAD)! Just to give a brief description of UAD, it is AWESOME! The students at this school have all written books or scripts for short films (older students) and this day is a celebration of their accomplishments! The school invites authors, writers, news personalities, etc. to share their time with the students and I was gratefully chosen!
(I was in B101 for the day. Things were so nicely organized, and with the exception of a slight misspelling of my name, everything was perfect!)
I spoke with three grades over the course of the day and had a blast! I shared, "Alex and Tony Learn to be Gentlemen" with them and we engaged in great, entertaining discussions. I hope they enjoyed me as much as I enjoyed them. The event was well organized and to make me feel even more special I was given an escort for the day. Her name was Mrs. Vicki Fadlevich, and I couldn't have been with a better person for the day! I hope she doesn't mind the "shout out."
I wasn't able to get any pictures of me interacting with the students but I did get a few pics of the awesome books that the kids wrote. I was so pleased with the very idea of this event, and I hope the kids continue to write throughout their lives!
