March kicks off what looks to be a busy and exciting spring speaking schedule. Last week I spoke at schools in Fort Worth, Texas — Remington Point, J.T. Stevens, George C. Clarke, and Van Zandt-Guinn elementary schools. Wow — what enthusiastic students! The wonderful librarians had prepared the students well. I returned to Austin with gifts and photos and wonderful memories. Below is a look at my spring speaking schedule, along with a few pics from my Fort Worth tour.
