Celebrate the Author

Becky is hosting a fun challenge in 2008, one designed to celebrate "the special bond - the connection - that occurs between the author and the reader" by recognizing authors' birthdays! The premise, simply stated, is to choose one author for each month of the year and read at least one book a month by that author. "12 authors. 12 birthdays." (You can get more details about the challenge as well as find out who is participating here.)

This is my preliminary list of authors (with two options for each month):

  • January - Shannon Hale or Virginia Woolf
  • February - Jerry Spinelli or Alice Walker
  • March - Lois Lowry or Dr. Suess
  • April - Barbara Kingsolver or Beverly Cleary
  • May - Jodi Picoult or Scott Westerfeld
  • June - Robert Munsch or Eric Carle
  • July - S. E. Hinton or Michael Connelly
  • August - Orson Scott Card or Ray Bradbury
  • September - Shel Silverstein or Elie Wiesel
  • October - Anne Perry or Anne Tyler
  • November - Madeleine L'Engle or C. S. Lewis
  • December - Emily Dickinson or Stephenie Meyer
I, of course, will be cross-listing the books I choose to other challenges as often as possible!
