Join us for the 33rd Helen E. Stubbs Memorial Lecture on Thursday, Nov 11, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Kathy Stinson has loved reading since before she started school. She sorted mail, taught elementary school, and worked as a waitress before it occurred to her that she might like writing too. An argument with her then 3-year-old daughter soon led to the writing of her first book, Red Is Best, which quickly became a classic.
Kathy has since written a wide range of juvenile, young adult, and adult fiction, non-fiction titles, and more picture books, including The Man with the Violin, winner of the prestigious TD Children's Literature Award.
