Today, he spoke to the girls about his experiences, his love of education, and his writing.  He echoed  his childhood frustration detailed in one of his many short stories:

"I knew information was in the words written underneath each picture in large black letters. I tried to figure them out by looking at the pictures. I did this so many times that I could close my eyes and see the words, but I could not understand what they meant."

Several of his books are available in the Castilleja Library.
