Today I’m hosting Interview Wednesday, a round up of interviews with authors, illustrators, publishers and others involved in bringing us children’s books.
Please leave the link to your interview in the comments and during the day I’ll add your contribution to the list here.
My offering this week is my recent interview with Hannah Shaw, a British illustrator and author with a penchant for furry animals with sharp teeth!
Melanie, who blogs at Library Mice, has an interview with Dan Freedman, a football (soccer) writer for both adults and grown ups – not only does he write the programme notes for England matches he has also written an entire series for kids, the very successful Jamie Johnson series.
Mother Reader, a.k.a Pam Coughlan, has a joint interview with middle-grade authors Matthew Cody and Aaron Starmer for us to enjoy. Head on over and find out why we have to imagine the interview being a shouted conversation over a throbbing bass line!
Author Laura Elliot let me know that she’s been interviewed over at Abbi Glines YA Blog. Laura’s paranormal coming of age YA novel was published just last week.
A series of interviews I’ve really enjoyed and think you will is that over at Children’s Books and Reviews where Aaron talks with children’s book bloggers about what they do. Amongst others, he’s already interviewed Julie Danielson who blogs brilliantly at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast and Travis Jonker who’s always insightful over at 100 Scope Notes.
Another interview I’ve found thought-provoking in the last couple of weeks is this one with Tomi Ungerer. Did you know Ungerer has designed a kindergarten in Germany in the shape of cat? You’ll find another recent interview with Ungerer here at the New York Times.
I’m looking forward to reading your interviews! Don’t forget to pop back here during the day to see what other conversations bloggers have been having with interesting people in the children’s book industry. And if you’ve read an interview that you’ve enjoyed, either in the blogosphere, or elsewhere online, do let me know so we can share it with others!
