Ellen Hopkins at OUR SCHOOL??? WHAT?!?!?
We must say, we're as surprised as the kids that we are getting this incredible author to come speak at our school. What's more, is that Ellen is going to give a lucky 100 students an extra hour of her time during a writing workshop the following morning. Everything is a bit of a blur at this point, but I think that we have things pretty much dialed. Nathan from Barnes and Noble has been not only effective in terms of keeping me calm about the book sales end of things, which is no easy task. We'll have Ellen's books available as well as some other titles that are relevant to Ellen's work. It's hard to believe that this is happening, but like anything else, the day will come and go. A big shout-out to Ellen ahead of time, and I hope she knows how much this is meaning to our kids. We have 63 copies of her six titles (and once had more but the reality is that these titles tend to be loved literally to death). This event will bring additional copies of both her books and others to not only our school but all of the high schools in our area. Thank you, Ellen!!!
