As part of the "Adopt A School Program," L.A. Campbell did three readings at P.S. 386 in the Bronx, New York.

The kids were amazing and asked a lot of questions.
Such as:
How did you know you wanted to be a writer?
How do you name your characters?
Where do you like to work? (Near the refrigerator, of course)

Starscape donated several copies of Cartboy and The Time Capsule for the school's classrooms and library.
