Katherine Paterson adds Nation Ambassador for Young People's Lit. to her many accolades

What great news... Katherine Paterson has added the title of National Ambassador for Young People's Literature to her long list of accolades. I have loved so many of her books including: Jacob Have I Loved, Bridge to Terabithia, and The Great Gilly Hopkins and The Master Puppeteer. So for the next two years Paterson will be selling the message that books and reading are life tools that can grow a child's world.

Publisher Weekly has a great article. Check it out.
