Mrs. Young at Inverness Elementary School has been a dear friend and champion of my writing for a long time, so it just seems right that she should be the one to introduce the world to Ludelphia and LEAVING GEE'S BEND.
Here's some examples of what they sent me:
A drawing of "The Witches of Gee's Bend"
A drawing of "The Red Cross"
And here are some quotes:
My favorite part was "When Ludelphia was in Mrs. Cobb's barn."
Something new I learned was "never ever run away from home. Gee's Bend is a real place. every Quilt tells a story."
Something I have in common with Ludelphia is "She keeps sekrets like me. I take care of my sister. i help my mom."
If I could tell my story in a quilt, I would use this kind of cloth: "1. Velvet 2. soft 3. cotten"
Sweetness, I tell you! And tomorrow the whole class is dressing up like characters from LEAVING GEE'S BEND for "Dress Like a Book Character" Day for the Anti-Drug Campaign! Will share pictures.
THANK YOU, JAN!!!!
