Free Poster and Worksheets for Educators!

March 29, 2017

First 10 to respond!  Are you using TINAWS in your classroom, library, or reading it with your child at home? I have an 11×17 flyer I’d love to send to you. One side has a poster with a quote from the book so that everyone can enjoy Maike Plenzke’s cover, the other has two activities you can use to help them meet writing and math standards.  

Each activity will fit on a regular 8.5×11 sheet of paper, or you can make a larger copy of both for them to spread out on their desk. Use the contact form on my website to send me an address, or DM me on Twitter at @sandraevans111.  

And don’t forget to sign...

Simon & Schuster has just added a Reading Group Guide to the official site for This is Not a Werewolf Story. I hope this will provide a convenient and easy-to-access resource for educators and book clubs.  Thanks to the lovely Ms. LeClercq for the photo of her whiteboard!

Pink’s is for medievalists

March 25, 2017

First I got to talk about This is Not a Werewolf Story with a bunch of people who love medieval literature as much as I do, then I got to go to Pink’s. Best long weekend ever, thanks to the Medieval Association of the Pacific, Loyola Marymount University, and my fellow panelists Jes Battis and Kim Zarins. Who knew there were so many of us writing YA works inspired by our scholarship?

Last Friday I had the chance to go back to Whidbey Island and visit the students at Crescent Harbor Elementary. Like a lot of the students in the library that afternoon, I’m a Navy brat. That means answering the question, “Where are you from?” always takes a beat or two to answer.  

To me, where I’m from is a place I’ve never really lived.

A few months ago I was driving I-5 north of Burlington, heading towards the Canadian border. The highway narrows there, hacked into the hillside, evergreens crowd either side.  Home. The word was there.  This stretch of freeway leads to the little town where I was born and lived for the first few years of my...
