One of my colleagues had asked a couple of questions about Macy McMillan and the Rainbow Goddess so I went on a quest to find the answers on yesterday's snowy afternoon. I thought the answers might be of interest to others on our team or others who might read either of these titles.
Today was actually the second time that I read Macy. According to my Goodreads, I read it for the first time eight months ago. Full discloure: I love novels in verse ever since I did a project on them. At that time, there were very few available.
My colleagues questions were:
Why verse? and
How does the author decide where the line breaks will be?
This interview by author Amanda Rawson Hill had the answers to both.
And, ever since we met to pick our books for the first round, I've been meaning to post an interview with author Cherie Dimaline, the author of Marrow Thieves.
