I’d like to talk to Hellenists who love, hate, or are ambivalent about these books, so long as you’ve got reasons and can explain them!
However, I also want to talk to the kids who have read them, which means I need some Pagan parents to introduce me. Yes, allowing one’s children to talk to strangers is not without risks, but I am more than happy to do what I must to mitigate those risks and maintain parental comfort levels. In a perfect world, I’d like to talk to your kids directly (phone or some other way that I can hear their voices), because we communicate differently in writing than we do when talking. Parents are welcome to listen in, although I’d prefer they zip their lips and let the kiddies say what they will without prompting. However, if sending questions via email and receiving transcribed answers is all you’re comfortable with, I’ll take it. I will also allow the parent to control what identifying information I include in the story.
