This March, Johnson students were lucky enough to get to see Kate DiCamillo speak during the Virginia Festival of the Book. The experience was spectacular, and I wrote a blog post to share the wonderful things that we learned. Since then, the post has garnered hundreds of page views, been shared by Charlottesville City Schools and Virginia Festival of the Book social media, and read by teachers and librarians across the country.
Now, the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities has published the piece in their biannual publication and shared with all of the organization’s members.

I’m proud to share this article and proud of the statement that it makes: Johnson students are proud readers, writers, and supporters of literature.
Pass the word along – young readers DO exist, and they are LOUD!
