Tomorrow, videographer Gretchen Vinnedge and I take off for Chicago to talk to students at J.W. Cook Elementary on the south side. I’m really excited to be visiting our friend–and an extraordinary teacher!–Caity Tully and to be returning to this beautiful historic school. The photo below was taken of our friend Mary Johnson, me and Caity (on the right) after I completed my 250 mile bike ride. We were celebrating our safe arrival in Chicago!

On April 29th, 2013, Wireman advocates will be setting off from Grand Rapids, Michigan to New York City. The goal along the way is to stop and speak to kids about their experience with the Wireman Comic Series. You see, Sue and others think Wireman is an incredible literacy tool for at-risk readers. Kids LOVE Wireman. Kids of all ages, but particularly kids 10-17. But even though Sue has found publishing homes for more than a dozen books, she hasn’t yet found the right home for Wireman.
If you love at-risk readers, help us promote Wireman by using her social media channels. ‘Like’ Sue Stauffacher books on Facebook and share what we’re doing with others who care about illiteracy.
