Author Info
Katherine Paterson
Born to German-American missionary parents, Katherine Womeldorf moved frequently during her childhood. As an adult, she followed in her parents' footsteps and served as a missionary in Japan. She received a fellowship to study at Union Theological Seminary where she met her future husband, John Paterson, a Presbyterian minister. Her 1975 book, THE MASTER PUPPETEER, won the National Book Award. She wrote one of her best-known books, THE BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA, in response to the death of her son's best friend. It won the Newbery Medal in 1978. In 1981 she won her second Newbery Medal, this time for JACOB HAVE I LOVED.
From the Publisher
Annotation Gilly Hopkins had been moved from so many foster homes that she no longer even tries to be nice. Brilliant, arrogant and angry, she is determined not to fit in to her new home--and, of course, she would never love anyone. After all, her mother is going to come for her one day, isn't she? But Gilly hadn't counted on Maime Trotter, her new guardian; Maime's ward, the wimpy seven-year-old William Ernest; old and wizened Mr. Randolph; and even her teacher, the cool Miss Harris, to worm their way into her wounded heart. The 1979 Newbery Honor Book.
