This week, meet Kirsten W. Larson, author of over 25 kidlit nonfiction titles. Her picture book biography Wood, Wire and Wings was just named a 2021 Best STEM Book by the National Science Teaching Association.
Kirsten shares her thoughts on writing compelling nonfiction picture books, incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) into picture books, and discuss her success writing for the school and library market. STEM and the school/library market continue to provide tremendous opportunities for kidlit writers – so you’ll want to hear what Kirsten has to say.
Laura also checks in with publishing links, and we celebrate the successes of some Children’s Book Insider subscribers.
