Loveliest of School Visits at St. Margaret’s

I had the opportunity to celebrate Teen Reed Week at St. Margaret’s School in Tappahannock, VA. Which. Was. Awesome.

We wrote a story together, which was great practice for the events in the upcoming Compelling Reads tour, but I’m not sure we can do better than what this amazing group of young women came up with. And best part? St. Margaret’s has a resident ghost, the grey lady, who waits for her husband who drowned coming home from the Civil War. Naturally, she figured into our story, but with the coolest possible twist.


The school and kids couldn’t possibly have been more generous and kind to me, and I’m beyond grateful for the wonderful experience.
