There was a lovely profile of Gary Paulsen in yesterday’s New York Times. I spoke to the author of the piece and she indicated that her son asked her why she did not profile a writer HE liked. Hence, Gary’s name came up. The profile is vintage Paulsen and has a nofty quote from a NYC librarian and former chair of the Newbery Committee, too.
