I had a great visit at Nashville’s Cameron Middle School last Friday. When I got to the library, I was greeted by this picture, drawn by a very talented sixth-grader named Jorge and colored by another sixth-grader named Rita.
There is some question as to whether it’s a picture of Grady from The Charlatan’s Boy or a picture of me. I would have guessed Grady, but as somebody pointed out, it has my name right there.
Below is a picture of the audience, who were extremely attentive and asked very smart questions. Many thanks to librarian Gina Wiser, literacy coach Sandy Smith-Hitt, and principal Chris Hames for their hospitality. They’re doing great things with some great kids at Cameron.

There is some resemblance… but the hair is all wrong.
What a great opportunity! (And no comment on the “photo” 🙂 )
I don’t know…you put a pair of glasses on that boy and…it just might be you.
But you know, Grady always told us he was ugly, but I never really believed him. I mean, I always pictured him as having a very intelligent look and a sensitive nature. So that picture can’t be Grady. It must be you.
