Diversity in Literature

Friday, January 13, 2017 (Listed under Observations)

Bestselling novelist Tobias Wolff (This Boy's Life), slam poet Taylor Mali, journalists Eliza Griswold and Jake McAuley and celebrated children's book author Dianna Hutts Aston came together on stage last week at St. Mark's School of Texas to celebrate storytelling. This Tenth Annual Literary Festival, hosted by St. Mark's students and faculty, marked the first time that a children's author was invited to participate. Not only is Aston known for her wildly successful Chronicle Books series, which includes A Butterfly is Patient, An Egg is Quiet and A Seed is Sleepy, but her earlier works like An Orange in January and A Moon Over Star (read by President Barack Obama to D.C. schoolchildren in February 2010), have become school and library favorites nationwide.

If you're interested in learning more about Aston's books or if you'd like to book her for a visit or if you need a top-notch manuscript review, check out her beautifully engaging website.
