Thank you to everyone who attended the virtual online party last week. I really appreciate your support and that a lot of you bought a book from me or on Amazon! WOW! I am honored and flattered. The winners of the party are:
- Cathy Hall: Journal
- Dasha V: Copy of Finding My Place: One Girl’s Strength at Vicksburg
- Jessi M: Copy of Finding My Place: One Girl’s Strength at Vicksburg
In the coming weeks on Wednesdays, I plan to share some more lesson plans, how you can use this book to help teach Civil War objectives, facts about the Siege of Vicksburg, fun activities that go with the book, and more. At any time to find anything to do with Finding My Place, you can click on the title in the sidebar under categories! On Mondays and Thursdays, I will still be blogging about children’s or YA books or books geared to help women and children around the world.
I’m excited to announce I will be speaking at a school where I taught 4th grade from 1998 to 2000–Otterville Elementary School in Otterville, MO on Monday, November 19 at their reading night. I love to visit schools to talk to children or teachers, and I have all sorts of ideas for talking with kids–or I can do what you need! You can always just e-mail me at margo (at) margodill.com, and we can discuss what you need at your event! I also love the opportunity to sell my book and am willing to come to your event for a discounted fee if I can also sell copies of my book. So let me know!
That’s it for today. In my family, Halloween is a big holiday–it’s my daughter’s birthday on the 26th and then we also go to Boo at the Zoo and trick or treat–so I have to say–it’s quite a holiday around here, even if my two-year-old won’t wear her costume. In other words, it’s time to go to bed!
