Broadening the Demographic, Bridging the Gap

This Facebook post (after my reading in DeForest) made my day:

We so enjoyed your reading last night….not often the husband and I get to enjoy something without the four kids. You were worth getting a sitter for…..Thank you Michael….the kids knew we were going a hear a writer last night…today …we were talking about it, and then we mentioned your name… 8 year old, Cooper, was distraught we didn’t bring him….”He wrote my favorite book….Coop!” The ten year old daughter as well was upset….”He’s got a split in his front teeth…just like me!” It would be interesting if she identified with Madonna perhaps, or Lauren Hutton…but as an English teacher, I would much prefer she identifies with one like you. I will for sure bring them next time. Thanks again.
