Welcoming the new ambassador…

Whoever decides this thing made another great choice when they selected Katherine Paterson to replace Jon Scieszka as the National Ambassador to Young People’s Literature. I admire Paterson very much as an author, and her Bridge to Terabithia is definitely one of those “now this here is what I’m trying to do” type books. I love this decision because she is also quite different from the first ambassador, except that she’s also perfect, and someone who will connect with kids and inspire adults. I also think this really cements this position as one bestowed on the highest achievers and most respected men and women of letters who write for young people.
