The Summer King Ballet

Last year I gave permission to a ballet school in New York state called "Dance for Joy" to use the story-line of The Summer King for their year-end recital. Well, look at the photos they sent me yesterday! Oh, I wish I could have been there. Findabhair, who has been doing ballet for years here in Ireland, agreed with me that the performance was obviously fabulous. And may I just add that this is the kind of thing that makes a writer's day!

Hi! I happen to be a student at Dance For Joy, and I have to say that I loved being in the Summer King ballet, and I am also a fan of your books. The ballet was so beautiful and so were the costumes and the midsummer fire we created. If it wasn't for you and your book, we wouldn't have had a ballet (we had 18 seniors!) and I'd like to thank you for that.

You are most welcome, Rebecca. It was thrilling for me, too!
