I had such a fantastic time. One thing that PSJA ISD did that was new to me was the make the author visit into a reward for readers. Generally the only students who attended were those who had read enough to qualify and had even read Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising (proven, believe it or not, by passing an Alex Van Helsing Accelerated Reader test.) The result: these kids were motivated and wonderful, and I spent five days surrounded by students full of questions. We talked about books, writing, vampires, and Alex, and a bunch of other stuff.

And check it out! San Juan Middle School's librarian, Minnie Lazo, posted an Animoto video regarding one visit that I really enjoyed!
Thanks PSJA ISD-- especially Ms. Nora Galvan, the Media Director who made it all possible!
