Great Vermont or Vermonter reads:
Katherine Paterson- Perhaps best known for her young adult classic, Bridge to Teribithia. And if you are looking for some holiday short stories, look into No Room in the Inn and other Stories from a Midnight Clear. I read all the stories in one night and there was something about each story I enjoyed. It was a great way to get into that holiday spirit. Check out her website for more information on this dedicated and inspiring author.
Eileen Christelow- If you're a parent, or if you have a child in your life, you've probably read a Five Little Monkeys book.
Karen Hesse- Best known for Out of the Dust, her Newberry Award winning tale of a young girl during the Depression, Karen Hesse masterfully writes historical fiction for young adults.
W.A. Bentley- Have you ever wanted to take a picture of a snowflake? Well, this Vermonter spent his life figuring out just how to do that. You can purchase a reprint of his work, or you can buy this children's book by Jacqueline Martin. My kids and I loved the illustrations, and they were excited to find out it was based on a true story.
And here's a couple of bookstores that are all knowing about books about Vermont and Vermont authors:
The Vermont Bookshop
There really are too many to mention here, and I guess you can see my bias toward young adult fiction, since that's my interest area, so I am looking forward to hearing from all of you about your favorite Vermont authors and books.
