Wonder Wednesday #187 (Skype Visit with Nora Raliegh Baskin)

Wonder Wednesday - Skype Visit (Anything But Typical) 

 *This has been the year of "Nora Raleigh Baskin".  

*We began the year with her newest novel Nine, Ten, A September 11 Story as our first read aloud.  

*After this read aloud, we had the opportunity to Skype with her and ask our questions and comments.  

*During the winter months we got a surprise author visit with Nora when she was in town for a couple of speaking engagements.  We spent the time talking about writing, being an author, and Nora's novels.  

*After the visit, I knew I wanted to share another title of Nora's and knew this would be the perfect one to pick.  I had read it years ago and LOVED it.  

*We had our third visit with Nora after finishing this novel and Skyped with her again.  It was a true treat to spend more time with her.  She is gracious, smart, and so kind.   

*Here is a look at our Skype visit in action...
