As of today, we are three months away from the Alabama Book Festival, which will be held on Saturday, April 20. For our Student Readers Group convening at 9 AM that morning to discuss The Poet of Tolstoy Park, we will utilize a town-hall format, where questions will be submitted in advance for Sonny Brewer to answer. This format should be much more interactive than the traditional author-talk format. I’m looking forward to hearing from the students and teachers who are reading the book. You can either submit questions to me via e-mail or through the group’s Facebook page.
