Here's a great story from Your Houston News about John R. Erickson's recent performance and live telecast with schools all across the nation, including Windsong Intermediate's Library. From the article:
"Students in Kathy McVey and Janet Lell’s reading classes attended either the 9:45 or the 1 pm show. Author John R. Erickson talked to the students about the inspiration for his series, the journey from writing to self-publishing, and how what was planned to be one book became what is now a 64 book series.
