I was lucky enough to be interviewed on Milwaukee's NPR station, WUWM, about the real-life inspiration for The Rhino in Right Field. Washington Park, the minor league Brewers, growing up Greek, and girls' baseball--it's all here. I hope you like it!
I had a great time meeting lots of kids (and teachers and librarians too!) at the Yard Goats game in Hartford, CT on August 23. It was Reading in Summer Night, and kids had gotten free game tickets as a reward for meeting their summer reading goals. What a great way to celebrate reading! Thanks to the Hartford Yard Goats and Simon & Schuster for sponsoring the giveaway.
