Description
 

For nearly fifty years, Katherine Paterson's stories have captured readers young and old. From Bridge to Terabithia's Leslie Burke to the unforgettable Gilly Hopkins to countless others, her characters are woven into the memories of several generations. Paterson's writing has always explored the rich emotional landscape of childhood, for she has never forgotten how she felt as a child herself.


The writer she became grew from her own fascinating life, told here in a collection of stories that reach from earlier generations of her family to the present day. Born in China to Presbyterian missionary parents from the American South, her young adulthood led her to Japan and then back to the East Coast, where she began to raise her family and put stories on paper. Each of these experiences influenced the books that were to come. Through Paterson's memories, we learn the origins of her characters and story lines and share in her unexpected literary acclaim. We see the intimate moments of family, creativity, and faith that come together for a life well lived.


With snapshots from her family albums and introductory remarks from fellow writers Kate DiCamillo and Nancy Price Graff, this is more than a behind-the-scenes look at favorite children's books. It's the story of a life infused with humor, joy, and gratitude, which inspired new stories embraced by readers everywhere.
