Pam van Hylckama Vlieg may be best known for her fantastic blog Bookalicious.org, but she’s also a literary agent with Larsen Pomada in San Francisco. We’re in luck to have Pam name her top YA picks for 2013.
We’re over the moon to have Gayle Brandeis visit TCBR. Gayle is a powerhouse mama, writer, activist, teacher, and all-around lovely person. We’re grateful to her for sharing her family’s favorite books with us.
Lisa is an incredibly talented painter and designer much in demand these days. Her latest book Imogen, written by Amy Novesky, details the great passion Imogen Cunningham committed to her groundbreaking photography and her three growing boys. We’re delighted to share our chat about becoming an artist, unusual animals, and all things Imogen!
The five sassy ladies at Girls in the Stacks kindly agreed to share their YA reading picks for the new year with TCBR. Here are their top YA selections for January-February 2013. Happy reading and Happy New Year!!
We’ve loved watching the journey of San Francisco bay area writer Rachel Sarah as she found love and had her second daughter. She is the author of Single Mom Seeking: Play Dates, Blind Dates, and Other Dispatches from the Dating World (Seal Press, 2007) optioned by 20th Century Fox. We’re overjoyed to get some reading tips from this super cool mama.
Self-proclaimed bibliophile Vera of Luxury Reading has stopped in at The Children’s Book Review with her marvelous list of hotly anticipated reads this winter by some of our favorite authors (Lauren Oliver! Laurie Faria Stolarz!).
Lisa is the author of the fascinating, award-winning memoir, A Double Life, Discovering Motherhood and co-editor, with Caroline Grant, of the forthcoming The Cassoulet Saved our Marriage: True Tales of Food, Family, and How We Learn to Eat. If you haven’t attempted reading graphic novels yet, Lisa makes a very convincing argument to give them a try!
Oliver Jeffers describes himself as “a maker of art,” but he’s really much more than this. He’s an extraordinary painter, designer, and author of many award-winning picture books. His latest picture book “This Moose Belongs to Me” concerns the trials and tribulations with ownership, antlers, and the rules of being a good pet. We’re honored to feature his thoughts on writing, illustrating, and bookmaking.
