Sunday evening found me calling all the old gang from Havelock. I know I should have started with Wendy as she put together quite a list of nearly one hundred people three years ago for the Havelock Reunion we held in Greenwood. It was blast seeing all the kids-now-grown who used to pass beneath the moonlit pines of the park. I spent many a night planted in the stone shelter there, talking or singing to the kids who came down there to party or just to hang out.
As it was, last night, I only put in one call. It was to Jennifer, a teacher in Omaha’s Blackburn school for suspended kids. Jennifer shared with me that the six kids who have joined her Book Club are reading 8-Ball, and what’s more, they are discussing the questions I pose in my Student Workbook! Jennifer claims it becomes like a group therapy session as kids relate to not only my book, but also to the questions that relate to their own lives!
So all is well in my Book World.
