I met George Ella Lyon!
George Ella Lyon and I started communicating with each other this past winter when I needed to request permission for my students to mentor their “Where I’m From” Poems after hers when they were writing DEAL WITH IT! Powerful Words from Smart, Young Women. We had dinner in Louisville on Friday night, along with Ann Olson, a photographer who did the photos for Counting on the Woods.
This photo was taken during her book signing after the author talk she gave on Saturday, 7/14 at the WLU Conference. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to meet her AND hear her speak. You’ll see that some of my future postings will have to do with her talk from yesterday.
