Have you ever wanted to learn how to surf? Then, pick up a copy of Samira Surfs by Rukhsanna Guidroz. Once you start reading, you’ll find many sweet spots within the novel’s pages and if you’re really adventurous, like Samira, you just might find a sweet spot on a surfboard.
When you’re listening to these interviews do you ever think, wow, this author seems like a fantastic educator, I wish she could teach my class for the day? Well, you’re in luck. If you become Chalk + Ink Patreon supporter, you can have access to teaching videos by April Jones Prince, Marcie Flinchum Atkins, Zetta Elliott, Erin Dealey, René Colato Laínez and today’s guest, Lisa Stringfellow. It must cost a fortune to access these videos, right? Nope, just three dollars for each podcast episode. I’ll only be releasing six more podcast episodes this school year.
