I e-mailed Laurie Halse Anderson’s assistant about setting up a Skype “visit” at school. I received a response stating that she is available for Skype visits during the month of February with a fee of $300. I’m not sure how to raise the money or how I’ll set it up, but I’m definitely working on it. I just e-mailed Mr. Darga to see if he has any information on this. Do any of you have any thoughts/suggestions? Also, I don’t know how many of you have read one of her books, but it will certainly make a visit more interesting if you have (hint hint).
UPDATE: I spoke with Mr. Smith after school, and he said that if my Young Adult Lit. class can raise $150 for the visit, he will cover the other $150!
