Events: Read To Me Program 12/18/08
I was delighted to visit young mothers who go to Brandeis High School. They are a part of the Read To Me program (RTM).
These single mothers bring their children to high school with them. While they attend classes, their children go to the Lyfe Center, a nursery/kindergarten. I explained how my book ideas become published; how women can have a fufllling career and to go for their dreams. Then I read GOOD MORNING, DIGGER to the mothers and their children while they enjoyed holiday cupcakes.
RTM also gave each mother an autographed copy of a book that I illustrated called A CITY IS, and had them sign up for library cards. Thank you to Susan Straub for this wonderful program; and to Deanna Pacelli, Kristen Lynch, Leslie Fass, Teresa Tartaglione, and the Lyfe Center.
