A Conversation with Joan Holub, about her books for children including the Goddess Girls Series and the Heroes in Training Series, May 28, 2015

May 28, 2015

I was brought up in a bookstore and spent most of my first 40 Unknown-5years in and around one. Books are in my blood…especially children’s books. My happiest memories of the book business have to do with the time I was the buyerimages for the children’s department. I once said, and still believe in large part, that if you can’t find “it” in a children’s book then it probably isn’t worth knowing.

Unknown-6I left the business nearly 25 years ago and had pretty much forgotten that adage until I started reading the work of Joan Holub in preparation for tonight’s conversation. I only had time to read about a dozen of her books—that’s only scratching the surface of her catalog that stands somewhere near 140images-3 books published—but I found the books enjoyable and educational. I love it when I learn something during the course of preparing for one of these conversations. That’s why I keep coming back.
