Told with her trademark humor and heart, Paterson's tales reveal details about her life from her childhood with missionary parents, to living as a single woman in Japan, to raising four children in suburban Maryland with her minister husband. Read about the origins of such familiar characters as Leslie Burke and Janice Avery from Bridge to Terabithia, and go behind the scenes to the moments Katherine found out she won her many awards. Filled with personal photos and letters, this funny, heartwarming history from a legendary writer lets fans in on the making of literary classics."

Professional reviews

"Laurie Birmingham gives voice to beloved and highly lauded children's author Katherine Paterson in this work of autobiographical miscellany. Birmingham strikes a balance between Paterson's warmth and her matter-of-factness as she recounts memories both extraordinary and mundane. As narrator, Birmingham's air of nostalgia makes it easy to forget that she's not the author herself. Her pacing, reminiscent of a conversation with a close friend, can best be described as leisurely. This may make some listeners lose patience, but others will appreciate the unhurried stroll down memory lane. Birmingham's thoughtful performance is sure to be valued by the author's devoted readers.
