I did my first public reading of my new children's illustrative book, Dream Big, today at the Spofford Elementary School in Boxford, MA. To say I was nervous was an understatement. I can't believe I read an entire book to 400 school children packed in an auditorium!! They were awesome, too!! Thanks to Julie Benson for arranging this. A FIRST for me!! Never "dreamed" I'd do that!!
