Huge thanks to the folks at Wapato School District in Central Washington for having me speak at their first Dinner and a Book family event! It was a great dinner, great audience and great show. Some fabulous young readers helped out and shared their amazing reading adventures afterward. I ran through a small portion of the usual high-energy school assembly "Write Makes Might" and got to wear the Arnold Schwarzenneger barbarian wig, which is one of my personal favorites (see picture below).
If you're wondering what I look like with hair, this is it. Well, at least if you're wondering what I look like with really long black nasty hair. I do a bit about "the Word Warrior" and the power of words with an Arnold Schwarzenneger accent, just in case you're wondering. I usually talk like that for about 3 days afterwards. It's addicting. So is wearing the full armor:
Giant thanks to all the kids of Wapato School District and to Mike Balmelli for getting me involved. Go Wapato!
