I have a couple of interesting announcements for you today! First of all, I have been added to the Illinois State Library’s official list of Illinois Authors. You can find my listing among those of other writing Illinoisans, including Sherwood Anderson, Gwendolyn Brooks, Earnest Hemingway, Upton Sinclair, Carl Sandburg, and more!
I have also become an official Illinois Reads Ambassador. Which, honestly, doesn’t mean a whole lot– other than the fact that I will be receiving marketing materials from them to share. So, you might be hearing more from me about Illinois Reads programs and Illinois authors in general in the future.
Both of these two distinctions actually came about fairly easily. I don’t even remember what I was Googling when I stumbled upon these opportunities. All I had to do to get involved was ask! So, I wonder, do other states have similar programs? Look up your state and let me know if they do!
