I just came back from the spring SCBWI – Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators – meeting. It was a thrill to see little Magdalena sitting next to Richard Peck’s books! ¡Qué emoción! Estoy lista para escribir y tengo mil ideas nuevas.
I also participated in a round table critique: I read my version of a Peruvian folktale “The Fox Who Fell in Love with the Moon”. I was told by the agent leading the discussion that the story was not pertinent to American culture. I wonder if he knows that almost 25% of all US k-12 students is Latino?
Hasta la próxima.
