News for Spring/Summer 2007

Workshops in Qatar … In April I was invited to Doha, Qatar, as a visiting author to teach creative writing workshops at the Qatar Academy, The Learning Center, and the American School.
Great news! Anahita’s Woven Riddle was chosen by the American Library Association as a Top Ten Best Books for Young Readers. It was also designated Children’s Pick of the List Winter 2006/2007 by BookSense, the American Independent Booksellers Association.
I am also pleased to announce that Anahita’s Woven Riddle was selected as a Cooperative Children’s Book Center Choice, and Read On Wisconsin, an online book club initiated by First Lady Jessica Doyle.
