One Reason I am a Writer

Last week Paul Stankard, an internationally acclaimed paperweight artist, called. A friend of his mother's who lives in Nebraska, was reading the June issue of Highlights to her grandchildren and was excited to find the article I had written about him. I have written about Paul for many glass magazines, but have never heard him so thrilled to see his work in print where kids could read about his Paperweight Magic. He was so proud of the fact that his grandchildren could read about him! His pride mirrored my own: I was thrilled to be able to bring his story to two million Highlights readers.
