Today is Patricia MacLachlan's Birthday!
(March 3, 1939 - )
"I do not think up topics. They tap me on the shoulder."
Patricia MacLachlan is the author of the Sarah, Plain and Tall Series (of which Sarah, Plain and Tall won multiple awards, including the Newbery Medal in 1986 [the Newbery Medal is awarded to authors, the Caldecott is given to illustrators]), as well as many other books for children and young adults.
"The more you do it [writing], the stronger you get at it…."
Thank you, Mrs. MacLachlan, for sticking to it and sharing great stories with us throughout the years!
