Thank you, Richard Peck!

Two of Richard Peck’s books

Richard Peck, who died this past week, wrote one of the first blurbs for Joan’s book, Home Front Girl. Both associated with Chicago , they had much in common in focusing on young people and their unusual stories and insights.

About Home Front Girl, Peck wrote, “This Chicago teenager’s journal–riveting and real–recalls an era when adolescence was preparation for adult life.”

Peck won a Newbery Medal for A Year Down Yonder in 2001. Many thanks, Mr. Peck, for your gracious and generous willingness to support other writers and for your lovely books!
