This past fall I had the great pleasure of visiting six Maine Islands with Island Readers and Writers. More than 600 students on these islands received a copy of my new book Some Writer! The Story of E. B. White and we celebrated White’s writings in community events, schools and libraries.
The best comment? When one young student was asked how this book about E. B. White made him feel, he answered, “Like I knew him.”
My thanks to everyone at IRW for making this tour possible, and to the staff, teachers, librarians, young scholars and their communities for your participation and enthusiasm. It was some tour!
