My guest today is literally a living legend — one of a small handful of people selected by the Library of Congress for their contributions to society. She’s the author of many books, a few of which have also become movies. One of the many is the beloved novel, Bridge to Terabithia read in 4th through 6th-grade schools around the world.
I am so grateful to have a chance to interview Katherine. Her wisdom and presence were so refreshing and fun pattern interrupt to the typical guest demographic.
We talked about career, writing, balancing family and work goals, loss and how she got started as a writer later in life than many (which I found to be very encouraging).
Also, I ask all of my guests if there’s anything they’d like to invite listeners to do. Her response is stopped me in my tracks. Make sure to listen through to it.
