Live Streaming of SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL and Interview to Benefit AT THE GARDEN

Saturday, March 6th @ 3pm ET (2pm Central)

I will be on hand to support AT THE GARDEN, a marvelous and empowering concept for a children’s television show produced by Chicago based producer and educator Sarah Faulkner. I’m happy to help launch this worthy project!

Join us for a discussion around the importance of empowering youth and ways to promote literacy while supporting the concept for “At The Garden”, a fresh take on a children’s TV show. 

Live Reading of “Something Beautiful” by Sharon Dennis Wyeth

A little girl longs to see beyond the scary sights on the sidewalk and the angry scribbling in the halls of her building. When her teacher writes the word beautiful on the blackboard, the girl decides to look for something beautiful in her own neighborhood, with an inspiring conclusion.

March 6th at 2pm, streaming on youtube and facebook live.

Tickets available here on eventbrite.

UPDATE:

Hey, Texas music lovers! Don’t miss A Family for Baby Grand in concert at the Civic Auditorium of Allen Public Library on Saturday, March 7th at 3:00p.

The Allen Philharmonic welcomes you to our spring Concerts for Young Audiences performance at the Allen Public Library. This free concert is designed to welcome children and their families to enjoy a fun musical program designed just for them.

Special guest soloist will be the gold medal winner of our very own Roger & Ella Jo Adams Concerto Competition and announcement of the winner will be made on January 25, 2020. This will be a chance for kids in the audience to see a performance by someone not much older than they are, and it’s sure to jumpstart their excitement about learning music! Featured programming will include a new work entitled A Family for Baby Grand, the story of a Baby Grand piano who leaves home to join an orchestra.

Pen Panel Success

Our Pen panel at the Brooklyn Book Festival on Writing Historical Fiction was exciting!

The moderator, Fatima Shaik, asked provocative questions followed by questions from the audience. I enjoyed contributing to the discussion along with my fellow panelists.

The picture to the left is of all of us on the stage. I think we look quite serious! But then putting history on the page is a topic we take seriously.

After our panel, we stayed to sign books and to say “hi,” to people passing our table.
