National Book Festival

At the 2015 National Book Festival

Anna Dewdney lives “in a big old house in Vermont with two scruffy dogs.” In addition to writing, she spends much of her time sketching and painting. Her advice to anyone who wants to be a writer: “Don’t give up your day job. It took me 20 years of very hard work to convince a publisher to publish my writing. But I never gave up, because writing and illustrating children’s books was the only thing (besides being a mom) that I ever really wanted to do.” Dewdney is the author of the Llama Llama series, the newest title being “Llama Llama Time to Share” (Penguin/Viking Juvenile).
