We had a great time Skyping with Liesl Shurtliff, author of Rump, Jack, and the soon-to-be-published Red! We were fortunate enough to have Ms. Shurtliff come to OTE last year when her book Rump was on the Bluebonnet list. This year, we were able to schedule a free 20 minute Skype! Students were invited if they finished the book, Jack, in time for the Skype. We had a good crowd with lots of great questions for our author! Several students had read Rump and Jack, so we had lots of text-to-text connections and questions!
