The Birth of a Book

Having never edited a book before, I had no idea how much work it entailed; my husband and I have done little else for the last month as we pushed to complete this project begun back in 2010. The students who dreamed this book into being are giddy with excitement because in two days we will hold the book in our hands.

I had thought that rest would come with the completion of this project, but I’m beginning to realize that we are just getting started. Orders are rolling in and the students are being invited to more events than they can keep up with. It seems that there is a strong interest in the students’ lives. Now we cross our fingers and hope that we have created an experience that will educate and excite our local community.

May the excitement spread like wild fire.
