Author: Cynthia Kadohata

Nice article about the author of this year's Newbery Award book, Kira-Kira.
“Kira-Kira” ... is Kadohata’s first children’s book and her fourth published book. She began writing after graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in journalism in 1979.

“I had thought I could never be a reporter because I can’t really drive,” Kadohata said. “I still wanted to write nonfiction though. I moved to Boston and there were a lot of bookstores and I started reading lots of stories.”
