What is Linda Sue Park Reading?
August 25, 2005
My library friend Miss Lynne tipped me off to the Live Journal blog of Linda Sue Park, who recently won the Chicago Tribune prize for her young adult novel Project Mulberry. As a press release notes, "'Linda Sue Park writes intelligent books for readers struggling to find their way in the world,' said Elizabeth Taylor, Chicago Tribune literary editor." On her blog, Park talks a lot about the books she is currently reading.
Winner of the 2002 Newbery for her novel A Single Shard, Park will pick up her latest blue ribbon at the Chicago Humanities Festival, which runs October 29th through November 13th. During that time you can also see Jon Scieszka, Salman Rushdie, Joan Didion, Umberto Eco, Adam Gopnik, and many others.
The San Francisco Chronicle review of Project Mulberry ran back in July.
