A note this week from Leigh Anne Florence, author of the Woody books and KPA’s annual fall chapter series, shows it’s not just young school-age kids reading the adventures of Woody and Chloe:
“Thought I would forward this email I received. We have been so busy with school visits and I have been behind in sending these.
“We had a school visit all day in Grayson County that also included an evening event. The school district’s PR person came over to take pictures and I introduced myself. She said, “What series do you write?” I told her and she said, “I KNOW THOSE DOGS! I READ THEIR STORY IN THE PAPER EVERY WEEK!”
“Then, when we returned to Shepherdsville last night I had to stop and pick up a few things at Rite Aid. I was checking out and the cashier said, “First thing I did when they delivered the papers to the store on Monday was to see what Woody was into this week. I laughed and laughed when he threw that important paper in the dumpster!”
“All that to say that yet again, we have a huge following of adults! And, as you see from the email, it isn’t just elementary students reading. I love that!
“As always, thanks for this great opportunity! Love every minute of it!”
LA and the Gang
Leigh Anne also attached a note from a teacher in the Berea public school system who is using the chapter series in her classroom and issued an invitation for Leigh Anne and the gang to pay a visit to the Madison County school.
