Have you ever heard of Karen Cushman?
Her birthday is today! Happy Birthday Ms. Cushman! Ms. Cushman is an author who has published 6 novels, her most famous of which is called Catherine, Called Birdy. Catherine, Called Birdy was written in 1994 and became widely read in schools across the United States. In total she has six books published. But, guess what, she has a new book coming out next month called Will Sparrow's Road. I can't wait to get my hands on it! Until then, maybe I will sit back and enjoy some of her other titles.
- The Loud Silence of Francine Green, 2006
- The Midwife's Apprentice, 1995
- The Ballad of Lucy Whipple, 2006
- Matilda Bone, 2000

There are some readers' guides and book descriptions available on the Houghton Mifflin website. In addition, Karen Cushman keeps up with her own website and she has a great blog! Enjoy!
