Today I want to introduce you to author/poet Liz Garton Scanlon. Her book All the World was just named the year’s best picture book by the L.A.Times and a Best Kids’s Book of the Year by The Washington Post. Reading her blog is like sitting across the table from her chatting, one-on-one, about life and family and writing and poetry and so much more. I read Liz’s blog for the beauty of the language she uses and I read it because she is always so darn grateful for her life that I can’t help but walk away from her blog feeling better than I did when I first started to read.
Liz is also one of the Seven Poetry Princesses responsible for encouraging them to write their Thanksgiving Villanelles.
Don’t rush your visit with Liz. Sit with her a while. You’ll be glad you did.
