  1. The challenge of writing about tough subjects is that it isn’t hard to get caught in our own biases. I often find when I am illustrating it is just natural for me to gravitate to things from my childhood — which is a world much different than that my grandchildren are living in. I read 12 new books to my granddaughter every week. Some of those books have underlying messages that challenge the readers to think differently. Reading — and writing — is a constant evolution.

  2. Hi! I’d like to participate in today’s webinar, but I am unable to register. Perhaps there is no longer space, or might I have be having difficulty because I live outside the US? Any help in signing up would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Amanda! Registration is still open, so you should still be able to register from inside or outside the US. I suggest trying to register again as there might be glitch. Let us know if you have any other issues. Thanks!
