A Conversation with Stacy McAnulty, author of “Mars! Earthlings Welcome”

    As part of the St. Louis County Library “Saturday Virtual Author Series for Young Readers,” HEC’s Rod Milam interviews children’s book author and winner of the 2017 Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor, Stacy McAnulty.

    Stacy discusses everything about her newest book, “Mars! Earthlings Welcome”…from how she came up with the idea, to how she works with her illustrators, and what other books about planets and the universe she hopes to write in the future. She also talks about how she went from being a practicing mechanical engineer to a writer of books for young people. And Stacy goes into how she went from a child that had difficulty reading in school, to a person that loves the printed word and makes it accessible to current young readers.
