Katherine Paterson is in her second year as National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. Her international fame rests not only on her widely acclaimed novels but also on her efforts to promote literacy in the United States and abroad. A two-time winner of the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award, she has received many other accolades for her body of work. She is also one of the writers of "The Exquisite Corpse Adventure," an original story written for the Library of Congress' Read.gov website and now a book from Candlewick. Paterson's new book, written with her husband John Paterson, is "The Flint Heart" (Candlewick). She has also just published "Brother Sun, Sister Moon."
