Special Horn Book Issue on “Fact, Fiction, and In-Between”

From Roger Sutton:

Sorry to be such a slug here but we’ve been knee deep not just in snow (and, yes, we HAD a snow day, but I had to spend it working on reviews) but in our special March/April issue of the Magazine, “Fact, Fiction, and In-Between.” Really, subscribe now: I think it’s going to be one of the best things we’ve ever published. Contributors include Kathy Isaacs, Susan Campbell Bartoletti, Erica Zappy, Matt Tavares, Mark Aronson, Steve Jenkins, Betsy Partridge, Monica Edinger, Tanya Lee Stone, Viki Ash and Thom Barthelmess, Marthe Jocelyn, Steve Herb, and Leonard Marcus; with short author-essays by Laurie Halse Anderson, Chris Barton, Margarita Engle, Candy Fleming, Jim Giblin, Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan, Deborah Heiligman, Katherine Paterson, and Andrea Davis Pinkney. PLUS reviews, which include–how does this happen?–two new picture book biographies of Jane Goodall.

My contribution is on historical fiction back matter, something I’ve been mulling on for some time, say in this post. All aspects of the theme fascinate me so I can’t wait to see the whole issue.  I agree with Roger that it is going to be excellent.
