Hello Everyone! We are excited to announce that we will be making changes to our website over the coming weeks.
Along with information about Carmen’s upcoming performances and books, we will also share books we love, resources we can’t live without, and give you a peek at rare books in our collection that seem to us too beautiful not to share.
If you are a school that has hosted Carmen, send us your pictures of her visit and we will be sure to share them.
What content would you like to see? A place for kids to write? Writing tips for Young Authors?
Send us your ideas and we will try to make it happen!
