Someday, Episode #10: Liz Garton Scanlon, Children’s Author

Welcome to Someday, where we interview interesting people from around the world to learn about how they make a living.  We call it Someday because one day our curious kids may elect to pursue a career in one of these fields.  In the upcoming months, we’ll learn: How to become a LEGO Engineer, the best thing about being a Veterinarian and the most challenging thing about being a Pastry Chef. 

In episode #10, we sat down with Liz Garton Scanlon.  Liz is the author of numerous beloved books for young people, including the highly-acclaimed, Caldecott-honored picture book All the World, illustrated by Marla Frazee, and her debut novel for middle grade readers, The Great Good Summer, as well as The Good-Pie PartyHappy Birthday, Bunny!; Noodle & Lou, and several others.  Liz is also a poet, a teacher and a frequent & popular presenter at schools, libraries and conferences. She grew up in Colorado and Wisconsin, and now lives with her husband and two daughters in Austin, Texas.
