I'm doubling up today and writing for both my daily slice and my Monday reading. (Tomorrow, I will post about my other two workshops at Teachers College Saturday Reunion for those of you who are wondering.) Check out teachmentortext.com and twowritingteachers.wordpress.com to see what others are reading and writing. Thanks to the hosts, Jen and Kellee, and Stacey and Ruth for so much energy and inspiration.
My booklist is short this week since most of my reading has been reading other bloggers' posts from the #Slice2013 Challenge. If you have a chance, you can read any of them by following the links on the comments of twowritingteachers.wordpress.com. I have been incredibly impressed with the writing and insights of all of the participants. I have read posts that have made me laugh and cry, as well as ones that have made me think and wonder.
Hattie Ever After by Kirby Larson was my reading accomplishment for the week. Although it took me a little longer to get into, I loved it as much as I loved Hattie Ever After. Kirby Larson weaves so much history into this story, but keeps it within the context of Hattie's story. Not only do I admire this skill as a writer, but I also appreciate it as a reader. Hattie remains an inspirational role model for girls as a writer and as a person.
Happy reading, especially if you decide to read and comment on some of the #Slice2013 posts!
