I had a fantastic afternoon at Strathcona Elementary yesterday, where I spoke to two groups of thoroughly enthusiastic students. They had some suggestions for my next non-fiction topic:
1. The apocalypse.
2. Dumb ways the world might end.
(Are you seeing a theme here? Well, wait until you hear the fourth suggestion…)
Unfortunately, I had coffee with a virologist last weekend and he assured me that there is absolutely zero possibility of a virus turning humans into flesh-eating monsters. So, there will be no non-fiction zombie apocalypse project. But maybe a zombie hamster chapter book? Hmmmm….
A big thank you to the staff and students at Strathcona for making me feel so welcome!
