Next month at the Hamline residency, Elizabeth Partridge will speak on her process of researching and writing “kickass” nonfiction. Check out her 2009 award-winning book Marching for Freedom and her biographies of John Lennon, Woody Guthrie and Dorothea Lange. Patridge’s riveting and insightful writing brings to life people and eras in a style that appeals and informs both young readers and adults. I can’t wait to meet her.

And now MARCHING FOR FREEDOM has been honored with a Boston-Globe Horn Book Award, too! (Announced June 8, 2010.)
