The visit concluded with students gathering around for our traditional picture with the author. The Skype visit with Lisa was a perfect way to end our Mock Newbery Book Club since it provided students with a meaningful way of connecting with the author.
I loved the conversations we had after the visit concluded and what one student wrote on our Padlet. "I think Tangle of Knots has the best chance to win the Newbery because of its well written characters and villians like the Owner who has his own collection of stolen talents..."
Thank you Lisa for taking the time to discuss your books with my students.
