Meet Award-Winning Author Katherine Paterson
Saturday, November 18 at 1 PM
at Shelburne Town Hall

Please join us in welcoming the legendary Katherine Paterson to Shelburne Town Hall on Saturday, Nov. 18 at 1 pm. **Please note this is a time and venue shift to accommodate community interest!**

Katherine Paterson's latest book, MY BRIGADISTA YEAR, follows a young Cuban teenager as she volunteers for Fidel Castro's national literacy campaign and travels into the impoverished countryside to teach others how to read.

Paterson is the author of many beloved books for young people, including BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA and LYDDIE. She has won two Newbery Medals, a Newbery Honor, and two National Book Awards. She is one of only three people ever to win both international lifetime achievement awards for children’s literature. In 2000, she was named a Living Legend by the Library of Congress.

There will be a reading and Q & A with Paterson, followed by a signing. The Flying Pig Bookstore will have the full slate of Katherine Paterson’s books available for purchase and autographing.
