Kirby Larson


FEATURED AUTHOR OF THE MONTH


Kirby Larson is the acclaimed author of the 2007 Newbery Honor Book, Hattie Big Sky, a young adult historical novel she wrote inspired by her great-grandmother, Hattie Inez Brooks Wright, who homesteaded by herself in eastern Montana as a young woman. That book, and encouragement from her mentor, Karen Cushman, gave Kirby the confidence to embrace her passion for historical fiction; in 2015, her book Dash won the Scott O’Dell Historical Fiction Prize.  A frequent speaker, Kirby enjoys sharing her passion for research, reading and writing. She has presented at more than 200 schools, workshops, and seminars in over twenty states and as far away as Qatar, Lebanon and Guam. Her passport is up to date and she’s ready for her next adventure!  Kirby lives in Kenmore, Washington with her husband, Neil.

Growing Up with Aloha
By: Larson,Kirby


FEATURED TITLE OF THE MONTH

Nanea Mitchell's barefoot island life in Honolulu, Hawaii, would be perfect - if only her family didnt treat her like a baby.  She may be the youngest, but she still wants to "dip her paddle in" and be useful.  She is ready for more responsibility, when the unthinkable happens: Japan attacks Pearl Harbor - the naval base where her father works - and America enters World War Two!
