Back to Good Karma

Welcome Friends! Here is a place for teachers, parents, librarians and writers to learn what's going on in the world of book author Karma Wilson.

Uh-oh…the cool factor.

I’ve been on a trip to Miles City, MT doing a few school visits.  I’ve always felt fairly confident with the younger kids, but now that my new poetry book is out (What’s the Weather Inside) I’m doing a lot more sessions with kids from upper primary.  On Friday I got a pack of wild sixth graders (if any of you are reading this, I mean that in a good way)! It was late in the day on Friday and I was expected to keep their attention….somehow.

I was kinda, sorta nervous. 🙂

But I think it went well. When I was done and the kids were leaving they said things like, “YOU ROCK” and gave me fist bumps and high fives. And I got to sign a cast (get well soon Trevor)!  I also read the first chapter of my novel to a group of advanced fifth graders. One really sweet girl said, “Drop everything else and finish that so I can read it!” So I guess I have to finish it.

Just a little good news update. Hope everybody is having a great spring. I’m loving the sun and sky and warm breezes….and the melting snow/ice.  The mud? Not so much.
