This past Saturday a group of student readers found themselves at a local Barnes and Noble for a quick talk and book signing by debut author Robert Beatty. Mr. Beatty was in town to promote his new story called Serafina and the Black Cloak.
I just finished Serafina, and will write more about it soon, but I will safely say that you will surely love Serafina and the creepy mystery that develops at the Biltmore House.
It was great fun to hear Mr. Beatty speak about the formation of his first novel and then meet him, if only for a few seconds.
I have loads of thoughts about the story, and some good ideas swirling in my head, plus Mr. Beatty and Disney/Hyperion have a few contests that some of you Inklings might want to enter.
So we begin this Thursday (August 20) in Mr. H’s classroom (2407) from 3:15 to 4:15. Make sure you have a ride lined up and join us for Inklings.
