I had a great three days in Long Island. More about that later. Today I’m off to Bank Street School for a video-taping session, and to observe my first mythology bee! I’m looking forward to seeing the kids again. Last time I was at the school, The Lightning Thief had just come out. It seems appropriate that I visit again as we gear up for The Last Olympian.
As I’ve mentioned before, the mythology bee is a nationwide contest sponsored by Disney. If your school hasn’t participated yet, there’s still time. Check the publisher’s Percy Jackson site for details. The overall winner gets a trip to Greece for four, and they’ll meet me and my family in Athens!
