I’m so excited for today’s announcement! Author Marge Pellegrino has generously offered to give away five half hour Skype visits to teachers via our blog! Some of you may remember Pellegrino from last year when we featured her book, Journey of Dreams, as our book group’s novel in April.
Here’s a little bit more about her:
Pellegrino jumped out of business and into the writing world in 1984. Passionate about sharing the power she’s found in words, Marge leads writers of all ages in workshops that make them think in new ways and discover their own voices.
Pellegrino has been given numerous awards and honors. She is a juried member of the Arizona Commission on the Arts Artist Roster from 1998-present. As a teaching artist, Marge has been nominated for the Tucson Pima Arts Council’s Lumie Award in 2008, the Governor’s Award in 2009, and named Local Hero by the Tucson Weekly, in December, 2006.
Her Word Journeys program at the Pima County Public Library was a finalist for the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities’ Coming Up Taller Award for excellence in after school programming in 2007 and won that distinction in 2008. She’s also won a number of awards for her writing.
You can check out her website for more information on her other books and the multiple ways she’s involved in the community.
I have no doubt that your students would LOVE a Skype visit with her!!
