Children’s Author Katherine Paterson wrote an op-ed in the New York Daily News

Katherine Paterson, the fantastic children’s and YA author of Bridge to Terabithia, The Great Gilly Hopkins, and many more beautifully written, haunting books, and the US National Ambassador for Young People‚Äôs Literature, wrote an op-ed today in the NY Daily News today–titled “Apple’s iPad is no book-killer: Author says technology is a threat to reading we can overcome.”

I think Paterson’s article is wise, reassuring, and comforting to those of us who love books.

What do you think?

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
