A Conversation with Joan Holub, about her books for children including the Goddess Girls Series and the Heroes in Training Series, May 28, 2015
I was brought up in a bookstore and spent most of my first 40 years 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 buyer 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.
I 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 140 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.
