August means "back to school"

August means "back to school"! 

I never thought I'd be saying this at this stage of my life but here it is, "back to school"!

Isn't going back to school something we all dread? After high school, it was university. After university, it was back to school as a teachers and then as a principal. And now, I'm headed back as a touring author and as one who believes in the power of reading and in the rights of every youth.

My good friend and agent, Chris Patrick, is in Europe for a month. Prior to leaving, Chris  booked me for three full months. I'll be in Alberta, B.C., Manitoba and all over Ontario. And the truth is, I'm so looking forward to going back to school!
