I've made a number of school visits this past month. The first was with a group of talented girls from The Young Women’s Leadership Schools in NYC.
We met up at the Center for Fiction
and had a fun afternoon talking about writing. Next, I went to Philadelphia, and took part in a program run by the Free Library
, that brings different high school groups in to meet authors. I talked with 6 different schools, all at the Bushrod Branch
of the Philadelphia Free Library. These super-smart kids asked great questions--and I gave out some wishing stones,
Saint Anthony medals, and issues of One Story.
Meeting with schools that have read The Good Thief
is a real thrill, and I hope to do more. Any teachers reading this who'd like to schedule a visit, just send an email to:schoolvisit (at) hannahtinti.com
