I’ve just finished re-reading Hattie Big Sky by Kirby Larson in preparation for my interview with Ms. Larson which will be published later in the month (details are forthcoming). This novel is truly a gem, completely deserving of its Newbery honor. My review of this book is the third most popular blog post here at Hope Is the Word, so obviously, other people are interested in it, too. I am over the moon about this chance to correspond with a real, live author, but there’s one problem: I’ve never conducted an author interview before. I’m sort of at a loss as to where to go with my questions. That’s where you, my faithful reader(s), come in: For those of you who have read Hattie Big Sky, can you think of any questions you would want to ask Ms. Larson about the story or her writing process? If you haven’t read the book but you have experience interviewing authors, what are some good, interesting questions to pose to an award-winning writer?
Stay tuned for this exciting bloggy development later in the month of February! If you haven’t read Hattie Big Sky, get thee to the library (or the bookstore, or click on the book and you’ll be transported to Amazon-land) and check it out!
