School Reviews

I am a retired teacher who is writing children's books. I would like an opportunity to read to your elementary students. My main character is Billy Bee, and I dress like a bee to read. This is probably not the place to contact you, but I cannot find any other place. I have a flyer describing my and my reading and will be glad to send a copy to you if I can get an e-mail address. Thank you for your consideration. Margaret H. Murphy (I taught at Alabama Southern)
