I can’t think of a better way to kick off 2023 than hanging out with teachers and cool kids! This time, I was honored by the Greyhounds at Goolsby Elementary School. We had a blast reading The Family Business and discussing my graphic novel Mischief and Mayhem.

Thanks to all the teachers and especially Ms. Douglas, for hooking it up!

This was an excellent prep for what’s to come during Nevada Reading Week (February 27th-March 3th 2023) and National Reading Month.

I’ve already booked the entire week of Nevada Reading Week and will visit schools throughout the valley — Hooray! It’s my official “Vegas Residency.” I just need to get tips from Celine Dion so I don’t lose my voice.

If you have questions about my school visits, make sure to check out this page.

See you soon!

Nevada Reading Week 2023 Theme: One World, Many Stories

Historical Background: For more than forty years Nevada Reading Week has been celebrated across the entire state – from small rural communities to larger urban areas. Activities often include book studies, author studies, literary readings by renowned authors, book fairs, and family literacy events. The stewards of Nevada Reading Week include PK-12 school librarians, educators, the Nevada Department of Education, the Nevada State Library, public libraries, community leaders, students and their families. Nevada Reading Week serves to promote a life-long love of reading. From students in Pre-Kindergarten listening attentively on a circle rug to their teacher’s riveting read-aloud to high school seniors engaging in rigorous discussions about a novel, the joy of reading is evident. Each school year begins with the selection of a specific theme that often reflects the spirit of the times. Once the theme is announced, it serves as a vehicle for leading a year-long campaign that culminates in the final celebration during the first week of March.

The Nevada Reading Week Committee has partnered with Nevada’s Read by Grade 3 Program to bring national and local authors together for a virtual live event.
