Happy Birthday, Katherine Paterson!

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Today is Katherine Paterson’s 80th birthday!  A year and a half ago I had the pleasure of meeting Katherine Paterson and I had the chance to have dinner with her.  She is incredible!  Read about her extraordinary life and her amazing collection of books at the Wheaton Public Library!
