Susan Beckhorn Williams: Wellsboro Bookfest Author
Kids, animals, the outdoors . . . Sue Beckhorn’s award-winning middle grade novels and picture books revolve around these things. Her stories sweep from the dawn of time to the present, from myth to adventure. When not at her desk, she is happiest sharing her love of reading and writing stories with young people in her dynamic school visits. This year she is thrilled to introduce her new middle grade novel, THE WOLF’S BOY, Disney*Hyperion June 2016, inspired by the finding of the fossilized footprints of a boy and a wolf/dog? walking side by side in Chauvet Cave in France.
