Author Thanhha Lai

Thanhha Lai is the wonderful author of our September book, Inside Out & Back Again!  I was fortunate enough to hear her speak when she visited Rhode Island for the Kids Reading Across Rhode Island event back in June.  She was delightful, funny and very interesting.  Inside Out & Back Again is her first novel.  It won the 2011 National Book Award for Young People's Literature and a 2012 Newbery Honor - not bad for a first book!  Hopefully there will be many more to come.

Find out more about Thanhaa Lai and read her letter to you, the reader!
