Things Start Tuesday at the Shanghai American School

There are 2 campuses at the Shanghai American school. I will be at the Pudong campus for week one and at the Puxi campus for week two. Each campus has about 350 middle grade children. There are 3 other authors here besides me. Sheree Fitch and Ralph Fletcher are for the elementary school children and Chris Crutcher for the High School children.

I begin on Tuesday with an assembly for the entire Pudong middle school. Using magic, humor and red noses I will be talking to them about writing and creativity. After the assembly I visit 3 classes. On Wednesday I visit 4 classes , Thursday 3 classes and a parents talk, and Friday 4 classes.

Every night we are taken out to dinner by a different group. ( HS, MS, and ES librarians, Chinese teachers, parents committee, and teachers committee). Our palates will be treated to tastes and textures from all over the world but I do not think we will be taken to a kosher deli.
