Acclaimed author Katherine Paterson will be in New Hampshire on Tuesday, May 17, 2011 as part of the New Hampshire Humanities Council's Connections literacy program. Paterson will offer a talk on her work at 7 p.m. at the Palace Theatre in Manchester. This event is free and open to the public but preregistration is suggested. Contact the NH Humanities Council to reserve your seats.
Katherine Paterson received the Newbery Medal for Bridge to Terabithia (one of the best and saddest books of all time!) and Jacob Have I Loved. She won National Book Awards for The Master Puppeteer and The Great Gilly Hopkins. Her most recent novel, The Day of the Pelican, tells the story of a refugee family from Kosovo. Paterson has spoken at the National Book Festival and is the current Ambassador for Young People's Literature. This promises to be a great event!
