We're about half-way through this residency. We had a visiting author today--(Sibert Award winner) Catherine Thimmesh. Her terrific talk and reading focused on her two most recent books, Team Moon and Lucy Long Ago, both of which are wonderful nonfiction/information books. While the subject matter of the books are worlds apart (Apollo space project and paleontology/evolutionary biology/anthropology), I was struck how each was really a story about the creative process.
I get to give a lecture tomorrow. Time to check my notes. Goodnight.
