Yesterday I watched myself talking with Joy Robertson on KOLR10-TV from Tuesday’s Ozarks Live: https://www.ozarksfirst.com/ozarks-live/national-young-readers-day-a-conversation-with-david-harrison-11-10-20/
Kathy Temean gave me an attaboy for my Laura Ingalls Wilder Children’s Literature Medal at her site: https://kathytemean.wordpress.com/2020/11/11/book-winners-reminders-kudos/#comments
Greg Holman wrote an article about my 100th book (EMPOWERING STUDENTS’ KNOWLEDGE OF VOCABULARY) that previewed in the News-Leader’s e-edition at this link: https://www.news-leader.com/story/news/local/ozarks/2020/11/11/springfield-book-novel-author-david-harrison-on-sale-preorder/6235047002/?fbclid=IwAR3i4f-XX0D_YapLslkfnQpH8wVpjOMZU9wVlxbbDOY3MyG1nhJmZIaDT1Y
Later in the morning the folks at Laura Ingalls Wilder Children’s Literature Festival sent me the video taken when I accepted the award. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9MH-FDCCX4
I tried to take a selfie but couldn’t get all my smile to fit in.
This afternoon at 3:00 CST I will be the guest of Joy Robertson on Ozarks Live as part of the celebration of National Young Readers Day. The interview will touch on the Laura Ingalls Wilder Children’s Literature Award, my career, and some of my work. I doubt we’ll have time for me to read anything but I’ll hold up some recent titles and smile for the camera.
The 2020 version of appearing on TV follows this routine: I’ll be escorted in, they’ll take my temperature, I’ll sit in a waiting room till show time, then be escorted in and out of the studio. It pays to be cautious. Joy herself has had the virus and is happy to get through it and return to work.
