I am so pleased that very soon I will be launching a campaign for the middle grade read A Place for Delta by Melissa Walker.
A Place for Delta captivates, inspires, and empowers children. The novel incorporates current environmental concerns into the narrative of one family’s multi-generational adventures.
Eleven-year-old Joseph travels to Barrow, Alaska, the most northern town in the United States, to help a group of wildlife biologists care for an orphaned polar bear.
Stationed at a research center with his Aunt Kate, Joseph becomes a player in a complex web of mystery, scientific discovery and danger.
The novel is complete with a glossary and resource section which helps extend the conversation beyond the text.
While I write my press materials and get ready to launch the campaign, I am going to give away 2 copies of A Place for Delta! This contest is open internationally. To be entered, please leave a comment. Posts, mentions, and tweets about the giveaway will earn extra entries for each. Contest will end and winners will be announced Monday, April 5.
