Maggie Steele is a covergirl!
The gutsy farm girl from Grain Valley, Kansas is featured on the cover of the new Kansas State High School Activities Journal, May 2013 edition.
The magazine also includes a strong endorsement for the new teen sports novel, just in time for the Kansas State High School Track and Field Championships, to be held May 24-25 in Wichita.
Author Grant Overstake found himself at a rare loss for words when he saw Maggie on the cover of the official magazine, which is distributed to every school in the state.
“Wow! Just wow!” Overstake said.
The article includes high praise for the novel, which features the color and excitement of the nation’s largest high school track and field meet:
Maggie was also recognized on Friday, Jan. 25th, 2013, (read post) when a copy of the novel was presented to the Kansas High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) during the United School Administrators of Kansas 42nd Annual Convention at the Hyatt Eagle Ballroom in downtown Wichita. A copy of the book is on display at the state headquarters in Topeka.
Maggie Vaults Over the Moon is an inspiring read for fourth graders to adults. From now through August, the author will make a donation to the Kansas High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) Sports Hall of Fame for each copy sold at the Watermark store, located at Douglas and Oliver in Wichita, or via the Watermark website.
