Throughout the 2012-2013 school year, a very special school used The First Thirty in different ways. For example, they had the Upper Division students read the books, and they did peripheral projects & had theme days at school based on parts of the book.
At the end of the school year, the school brought Greg to campus for two days. On day one, he did a presentation for the students & staff, answered questions they had about the story, signed copies of the book, and took part in a 'milkshake reception' with the staff & students (based on a theme in the book). The next day, he served as the graduation / convocation speaker. After he spoke, he did a book & poster signing for those in attendance. In conjunction, a number of local companies engaged in additional projects with the school, using the books. During the trip, Greg also spoke at a number of other local events.
Here are pictures from the 3 day trip.
