Elizabeth Wein at Once Upon A Time Bookstore in Montrose, CA
Those of you who enjoy historical YA, this is an author you should know. I had the pleasure of getting to chat with her at a tapas bar before her US book launch of Rose Under Fire, her companion to her Printz Honor and Edgar Award-winning Code Name Verity.
In spite of these prestigious awards (and she’s a pilot!), Elizabeth is a wonderful, warm down-to-earth person who lives in Scotland with her husband and children. She delighted the standing-room only crowd at Once Upon A Time Bookstore in Montrose by showing us her WWII artifact collection.
She is touring the US and Canada over the next few weeks, so if you get a chance to see her, don’t miss it. Details here:Â http://www.elizabethwein.com/
