PBS KIDS VIPHere’s a Rock Father fact that most people don’t know: In 1987, while in Fifth Grade, I became an award-winning author… a “Young Author,” to be exact. After penning a short story called THE LITTLE CHAMP (which I’d later come to find out was a very technically-inaccurate portrayal of a race horse), I got to represent my school at the Illinois Reading Council’s Annual Young Authors’ Conference at Illinois State University. Fast-forward about 27 years, and I’m a parent, and through my relationship with PBS KIDS, am helping to spread the word about getting other kids writing for the annual PBS KIDS Writers Contest. TONIGHT (March 18, 2014), I will be co-hosting the #PBSKIDSWrite Twitter Party, and I’d love it if you could join!
