Library of Congress

National Book Festival

At 15, Kathleen Krull was fired from her part-time job at the library for reading too much. After college, she spent 10 years working as a children's book editor before becoming a full-time writer of books for children. Her award-winning titles include books in the "Lives of" series– "Musicians," "Writers," "Artists," "Presidents" and "Extraordinary Women" and "Harvesting Home: The Story of Cesar Chevaz." Her most recent book is "A Woman for President: The Story of Victoria Woodhull" (Walker and Company, 2004). She is the recipient of the Boston Globe/Horn Book Honor Award and the Christopher Award and her titles have been included on American Library Association Notable Book lists. She and her husband, children's book illustrator Paul Brewer, live in San Diego.
