May 4, 2022 | Community Good News, HFGather, Podcasts

We celebrated Children’s Book Week (and Teacher Appreciation Week!) with an #HFGather featuring author Sarah Aronson talking with Amy Guglielmo, Creative Director for Reading Rainbow Live. The two had an enthusiastic conversation about:

  • Amy’s work as an artist, art educator and Creative Director of Reading Rainbow Live!
  • Sarah’s experience of having her book Just Like Rube Goldberg featured on the show
  • How books are selected for the show; finding books that have been overlooked. Find out more at https://readingrainbowlive.com/
  • Opening doors to a creative life without expectations
  • Where they find inspiration
  • Embracing your writing the way kids do, without worrying about perfection or your audience
  • Finding inspiration in collaboration
  • Sharing your excitement about something with kids–enthusiasm is contagious!

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
