The Suzume No Gakko Summer School in San Jose
invited me to speak to their students in grades 1 – 6, on being an author. It was to captive audiences that I shared stories on how my Wordsworth books were written. But when Wordsworth made a surprise visit, the stage became all his.
Wordsworth was pretty excited and it looks like he shaved off his whiskers that morning. One alert first grader brought it to his attention.
Wordsworth promised to dance the waltz with everyone at his next visit.
