Last week Angela Maiers had the privilege of speaking with Peter Reynolds, award-winning author of The North Star, The Dot and Ish. As an elementary school teacher, Angela adored Peter’s work and was thrilled to make a personal connection to him a few years ago. Peter’s company, Fablevision, and Choose2Matter came together last September 15 to celebrate Dot Day, with the combined theme of “Make Your Mark Matter.”
