For some reason, wordpress wouldn’t let me edit my last post, so I am redoing it.
Not so weird news! No this is great news! About a great friend!
Several years ago I met Luke Reynolds when he asked me to write an essay for a book called Break These Rules. We hit it off immediately and have been friends ever since. You know that feeling when you ‘meet’ someone you feel like you’ve known forever? That’s how it was with Luke.
He has a book coming out any moment now called The Looney Experiment that is terrific. Great voice. Great story.
Luke is a teacher and amazing at that, too.
We met at ALA this last June and I have to tell you, he’s as kind as I thought he was. And when I saw him interacting with the kids there, I was blown away. He was in his element. So natural.
I always feel like there’s something wrong me. I’m the odd man out.
I’ve never felt the way I saw Luke act. He was a natural. Funny. Calm. Pleased to be there. I felt like the kid (yes, I always feel like the kid) who’s so awkward people have to look away.
But not Luke.
You’re gonna love him.
Go to his website. He’s got lots of teachery things there.
Get his new book The Looney Experiment.
