Kerlan Collection

To my utter astonishment, the Curator for the distinguished Kerlan Collection of Children's Literature in the University of Minnesota contacted me. She asked for my manuscripts and notes. To be added to the collection along with the likes of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys!

So I sent one of my early drafts of GIRL OVERBOARD, the notes I took while studying up on snowboarding, and some signed first editions and galleys.


  1. First of all, what in the world are you doing up posting at THREE something in the morning? And second of all, congratulations. That's exciting!

    It's nice to see some new postings from you :)

  2. Wow. That is SO COOL. Congrats. :)

  3. Very cool! I have visited the Kerlan Collection a couple of times, and it's amazing to see the evolution of authors' creative works. Some of my favorites there are drafts from Karen Hesse, Sharon Creech, Kate DiCamillo and Jane Yolen. You'll be in good company. Congratulations!
