Thank You, Teachers & Librarians!!!
This month, I’m celebrating all the wonderful teachers and librarians out there sharing books with their students. As a former school librarian, I know how effective booktalking can be to help sell kids on books–both old and new.
Teachers & Librarians, here is how my November book giveaway works:
Follow me on Twitter @cynthiareeg and send me a tweet with #booktalking in it. That’s all you need to do to be entered. I’ll send the educator selected a copy of both my MG fantasy novels: FROM THE GRAVE and INTO THE SHADOWLANDS!
Thanks again for all you do!
More School Visits & NCTE
This week I visited Holy Infant School in Ballwin, Mo and shared writing tips with the 5th & 6th grade students. They enjoyed listening to a clip of INTO THE SHADOWLANDS as well, and they asked insightful questions about writing. Scary on!
Next I’m on the National Council of Teachers of English Conference at St. Louis where I’ll be enjoying hanging out with awesome teachers and authors. Plus, I’m teaming up with fellow authors, Vicki Erwin, Stephanie Bearce, and Jeanie Ransom for a presentation encouraging teachers to write as well!
N.07 – The Write Life: Authors Empowering Teachers to Find and Share Their Authentic Voice with Students Come join us if you can! My books will be available there at the Left Bank Books booth. Check it out!
Educators Were Eager for Their Own Copies
It was an awesome experience signing books on Saturday at the International Literacy Association 2017 Conference in Orlando. What an awesome opportunity to meet these individuals who are making such a profound impact on young lives.
One special experience was meeting a teacher who told me that one of her students recommended my book, FROM THE GRAVE, to her. How cool is that! He told her she had to grab a copy of Book 2, INTO THE SHADOWLANDS. How I love knowing that readers are connecting with my stories!
Another thrill was meeting closing keynote speaker for the conference, Bryan V. Garrett, in line for my books! Mr. Garrett has been called “One of the most compelling voices of our times.” He is the Chairman of the National Family Engagement Alliance and former CEO of the National PTA. He is also author of “The A B C’s of Life” published by Scholastic. It was an honor to meet him and to share my stories with him.
I encouraged all the teachers I spoke with to contact me if they would be interested in setting up a Skype visit with me for their classes. As I said above, I love connecting with students and sharing my joy for reading and writing with them!
