I was honored to join the faculty at the Highlights Foundation for this year’s Master Class in Nonfiction Writing for Children. Other faculty members included Larry Dane Brimmer, Peter Jacobi, Sandra Neil Wallace and Rich Wallace, and Carole Boston Weatherford. I admire each of them as individuals and as writers. Highlights is a place where I’ve grown tremendously as a writer through workshops with people like Eileen Robinson and Harold Underdown, and I’m so happy to have had this opportunity to return and teach there. Spending time with the Highlights family, enjoying the views in the Poconos, and eating amazing chef-prepared meals was wonderful too!
