Stay tuned here for more information on the Seventh Annual Hudson Children's Book Festival on May 2, 2015!
Edward Averett was born in southwestern Washington State, and moved around a lot as a child. Reading became a passion for him at a young age as he continually adjusted to new schools. His favorite books in his youth were The Yearling by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, The Enormous Egg by Oliver Butterworth, The Black Stallion series by Walter Farley, and many others. He started writing his first novel at age 11. He became a full-time writer for the first time in 1981 when he moved to a small village in Southern Spain with his family. He now lives in Ecuador, at 8,000 feet up in the Andes, and continues writing. His novels are about how families work through grief and loss, which can occur in many forms. He believes that people can get through major life transitions and find a better way of living. His major novels include The Rhyming Season and Cameron and the Girls, and his short stories include "Pig Lessons" and "Joaquin Years."
And special thank you to all of those that contributed to the 2nd Annual Hudson Children's Book Festival Scholarship Fund (Founded by Chris Jones & Susan Simon)
