Lynn Plourde

Lynn Plourde is the author of thirty children’s books including her newest You’re Doing THAT in the Talent Show?! as well as Pigs in the Mud in the Middle of the Rud, Wild Child, and Dino Pets. She has three more books coming out in 2016: Bella’s Fall Coat, Baby Bear’s NOT Hibernating, and her first middle grade novel, Maxi’s Secrets (or what you can learn from a dog). Her books have received a variety of recognitions including Junior Library Guild selection, School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, Los Angeles Times Best Children’s Book, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award, and Amelia Bloomer List. Plourde considers herself a “teaching author,” as she does numerous author visits to schools each year during which she teaches students how to write their own stories. Video read-alouds, learning activities, and a blog on teaching writing are available at her website.

Come meet Lynn and dozens of other Maine authors at Books in Boothbay on July 9!
