Author Spotlight: Ellen Wittlinger

Layout 1

Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester is happy to shine our Friday Spotlight on author Ellen Wittlinger, who will be visiting our 65 James Street store on Saturday, November 11, from 1:00 – 3:00 PM to share her latest middle grade novel, SATURDAYS WITH HITCHCOCK. To celebrate, the store will also be hosting some pop culture trivia questions throughout the event with some cool prizes for the winners!

Thank you so much for joining us, Ellen! Can you please tell us briefly a little about yourself and your writing? How would you like us to introduce you?

I’m the author of 17 books for young adults and tweens (and I also write plays for adults.) My book Hard Love (a YA) won a Printz Honor Award from the American Library Association and also a Lambda Literary Award. My novels have been chosen as Best Books for Young Adults, Junior Library Guild selections, and have won several state book awards. Some have been translated into German, French, Turkish, Croatian, Korean, Dutch, Danish, and Italian.

 

For readers unfamiliar with your work, how would you describe what you write?  What can readers expect from your work?

Someone once asked me what my books were about and I hesitated, unsure if there was anything linking them together. But my husband, who was standing nearby, said, “They’re about how art can save you.” And I think that’s about as good a description as there is. Many of my characters face some kind of challenge for which they need strength and energy—often that strength and energy emerges as they immerse themselves in writing or painting or music or, as is the case with my characters in Saturdays with Hitchcock, they immerse themselves in movies and hope to eventually make that their career. I also try to have both boys and girls represented in my books in the hope that the books will speak to both genders equally.

 

What kind of research went into writing this book?  What is your favorite research story? What cool facts and findings didn’t make it into the book, but you loved discovering?

The research for Hitchcock was the most fun research ever—I watched movies! First I made lists of movies I remembered watching when I was around the age of Maisie and Cyrus, then I added movies I knew my kids had loved, and then I Googled similar films. I ended up with a list too long to use in its entirety, but I spent many afternoons watching great old movies and calling it work. (I’ve always been a movie lover, so this was incredibly fun.)

What character did you love or hate the most while writing? And why?

Well, I always more or less fall in love with my characters, and in this book, I really loved them all, but the standout character for me is Uncle Walt. Maisie’s Uncle Walt is based on MY Uncle Walt—yes, I even used his real name. My Uncle Walt was my mother’s younger brother (same as in Maisie’s family) and he too left our small Midwest town to become an artist. He wasn’t an actor (as in SWH) but he was a musician who traveled all over the country with Big Bands in the 1950s, and when he came to visit my grandmother showered him with attention and so did I. Later he ended up settling in the Los Angeles area (same as in SWH) and kept playing his trombone until he passed away at age 80. I’ve always believed that it was his example that allowed me to believe that I too could do such an impractical thing as leaving home and becoming an artist.

 

What else can we expect from you in the near future?

Next year (October 2018) I have another middle-grade novel coming out, also from Charlesbridge. That one is called Someone’s Else’s Shoes, and it’s about three kids who are unlikely companions thrown together under difficult circumstances. It’s often funny, but it’ll make you cry too.

 

What is/are your passions when you’re not writing? How do you make time for your non-writing hobbies/things you love?

Writing takes up a LOT of my time, but I also enjoy doing things with my hands. For a while I was making hooked rugs, but now I’m contemplating doing some painting. I was an art major in college and often miss the physicality of making art. I also love photography, which probably qualifies as my primary hobby these days.

 

What is one thing that most people don’t realize about you?

That I started my writing career as a poet for adults. I published a book in 1970. Then I segued to plays and wrote those seriously for six or seven years before trying my hand at fiction. After a job as a children’s librarian (and reading the shelves there) I started writing for children and young adults.

 

Are there any groups, clubs, or organizations that you would recommend to other writers that have helped you in your career?

SCBWI (Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) is a necessity for anyone hoping to write for this age group.

Where can people find your work? (Besides ABSW ;)–though they should totally check here first!)

Any online bookstore should have most of them, and brick and mortar stores (my choice too!) can always order them if they aren’t in stock.

 

How can we follow your work, share your awesomeness, or otherwise stalk you in a totally non-creepy way?

Spotlight: Jim Zebrowski, Aldrich Astronomical Society

10202017 - Jim Z Aldrich Table at Scout event 05_22_2010

Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester is happy to shine their Spotlight on Jim J. Zebrowski, who is conducting our EVENING OF ASTRONOMY event TONIGHT AT 7:00 PM!  Join us at our 65 James Street address for a night of hands-on, interactive night with the stars! See some beautiful slides, learn about space, and if the night is clear, use a high-powered telescope to discover more outside our planet.

Jim J. Zebrowski is the current President of Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc., a local non-profit astronomical society offering educational programs for adults and STEM activities for youth to encourage an interest in science and star gazing. He has also been a volunteer since 2001 in the NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador Program which is a national public engagement program that communicates the science and excitement of NASA missions of exploration to better understand our solar system and the universe we live in.

Jim is semi-retired from his job working as physicist working as a photolithography process engineer in the high tech sector in Massachusetts for over 30 years building circuits that helped our nation’s defense and our planet explore the solar system and universe using remote sensing devices.

Thank you so much for joining us, Jim! What’s your earliest memory about exploring astronomy? What drew you to the stars?

My father (Joseph Zebrowski) introduced me to astronomy when I was 6 or 7 years old because he had taken a course in celestial navigation when he served in the army air corp during World War II – he helped taxi B17 bombers off the runway to get them ready for combat.  I had so many questions for him that he finally directed me to our local library in Syracuse, N. Y. ( Hazard Branch Library!!) where I used to walk every day to pick up books and read about science and astronomy! 

It always intrigued me that the stars were so far away – how did we know anything about them? How about the planets – especially Mars? Many unknowns that pulled me into wanting to learn more about science and especially astronomy and the space program!

 

What are your favorite things to study in astronomy? Or your favorite things to find in your telescope?

Favorite things to study are the search for extraterrestrial life in our solar system and the search for Earth-like planets orbiting nearby stars! I always enjoy looking at double stars, globular clusters, galaxies and of course the nearby planets like Jupiter and Saturn.

10202017 - Aldrich Astronomical Society member Jim Zebrowski talking about Comets

What’s the most important lesson astronomy teaches all of us?

It helps connect us to past cultures who also had many people looking up in wonder at the same skies filled with stars that I try to tell people and especially youth about today. Our connection to the stars is in our DNA – we are all star dust and linked to universe we live in.

 

Is there a particular thing you teach or share with people that gets the most surprise or “I didn’t know that” response?  What is that thing and what can you share about it?

Most people do not appreciate that telescopes are not magnifiers but are essentially light collectors! Magnification is not the most important part of the telescope – I try to explain to people that a telescope’s aperture or light gathering mirror, or lens is the essential part of the telescope that allows the human eye to resolve or separate closely spaced objects in great detail! A typical adult pupil that is dark adapted at night is only 4 mm across – a child’s pupil when fully dark adapted can be up to 8 mm in diameter. Imagine that instead of 4 or 8 mm, I can give you a pupil that would be 150 mm across – that is the real power of the telescope – it allows you to resolve closely spaced objects in space and see the beauty of double stars, planets, craters on the moon or distance nebulae!

 

What’s the most important piece of advice you can give to someone who wants to get into astronomy either as a hobby or as a profession?

To become an astronomer, I learned you need to have a rigorous background in mathematics, which I was not good at, and you have to be willing to spend long hours gathering and analyzing data from any observations you make using the limited amount of telescopes that are available to professional astronomers. Or you can go into public outreach and share your passion for astronomy and space exploration as an amateur astronomer which is wonderful way to learn about the universe you live in!

 

What are some of your favorite resources for stargazing and astronomy?  What are your favorite tools?

The local library is still a great resource along with your local astronomy club – we deliver modified telescopes to local libraries so patrons can explore the night sky from their own backyard by borrowing a tabletop telescope from their library using their library card!  I also highly recommend monitoring breaking news through spaceweather.com or going to the NASA Youtube video section to watch What’s Up for October 2017?  The latter feature offers sky watching and space updates for each month in a really easy to understand 3 minute format!

 

What’s your favorite thing to teach people about astronomy and why?

I want people to not be intimidated by what they do not know – astronomy is the most basic of sciences dating back to as long as humans looked up in wonder at the night sky. It helps connect us to our past and helps ground us for a better future – all it takes is a little effort to begin your own personal exploration of the universe by visiting your local library or by joining your local astronomy club.  I always tell my students or club members that the stars will always be there for you – if you can look up at the stars and know something about them, you are taking the first step to better understanding the world you live in. It is what I would call, developing your cosmic perspective!

10202017 - Jim Teaching

What has been your favorite adventure as an astronomer?

Taking a leap of faith by committing myself to drive across the country to view the total solar eclipse from Tetonia, Idaho on August 21, 2017. I had never driven that far or taken that much equipment with me to any event – it was an amazing experience that I was able to share with my wife and with a few members of my club. It was also an experience that included talking to people as we took our journey across the country – it was an experience of a lifetime!

 

How can we follow your work, share your awesomeness, or otherwise stalk you in a totally non-creepy way?

Thank you again, Jim, for the great interview! We look forward to your Evening of Astronomy tonight, at 7:00 PM, at our store!

Events Buzz: Busy October!

10222017 - Abode Cover

Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester at 65 James Street continues to FLY through a fabulous October filled with fun events!

There’s so much going on—especially this week with FOUR events!—we’re only going to talk events for this blog!

THIS TUESDAY, October 17, from 6:00 – 8:00 PM, join us for Music and Magic with D.J. Butler, author and performer.

David John Butler is a lover of language and languages, a guitarist and self-recorder, and a serious reader. His training is in law, and he’s worked as a securities lawyer at a major international firm and inhouse at two multinational semiconductor manufacturers before setting up in solo practice. He’s a consultant and corporate trainer, teaching business acumen to employees of world-class companies. He started writing fiction in 2010. He’s written novels for middle grade, young adult, and adult readers that spread across the speculative fiction spectrum. His titles include The Kidnap Plot, City of the Saints, Rock Band Fights Evil, The Buza System from a variety of publishers, and he’s the acquisitions editor at WordFire.

Witchy Eye is the story of Sarah, a clever, brave, loyal, xenophobic, and somewhat mean Appalachee witch who learns she is the secret daughter of the dead empress Mad Hannah Penn, and that the living emperor, Thomas Penn, has learned of her existence and wants her dead. It’s epic fantasy—set in an alternate 1815 America.

THIS THURSDAY, October 19, from 7:00 – 8:00 PM, we’re hosting our monthly Doctor Who Discussion Night: Haunted Places.

Join us for an extra-spooky spin as we talk about the different types of haunted places the Doctor has visited!

Author Spotlight: Whitney Stewart

11102017 - MindfulKids_Box_Front_RGB_72dpi

Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester is happy to shine our spotlight on Whitney Stewart, author of travel stories, children’s books, and a new set of mindfulness activity cards, Mindful Kids. The staff at ABSW were really excited to see a demo of the card set from Barefoot Books, so we worked with the publisher to create a special event this holiday season, where we will bring Whitney to the store and actually practice some mindfulness techniques to help our patrons with holiday stress!  On December 3, from 1:oo-3:00 PM, come to our 65 James Street store to learn a few mindful activities for adults and children, to help make this holiday season a little less stressful.

Whitney Stewart will travel far for a story. She’s trekked in a Himalayan snowstorm with Sir Edmund Hillary, interviewed the Dalai Lama in India, and visited Aung San Suu Kyi in Burma. She’s worked as a puppeteer in France and has dug in former WWII battlefields in rural Poland. She is the author of travel stories, multiple children’s books, and her new mindfulness activity cards, Mindful Kids. When she is not writing or traveling, she teaches mindfulness and meditation to children.

Whitney grew up in Wayland, MA and now lives in New Orleans.

Not only did Whitney give us a great interview about herself and her work, which we’re sharing today—but also, she gave us some great information on mindfulness that we’ll share next month!

 

Thank you so much for joining us, Whitney! What is your favorite part of being a writer?  Of the whole writing and publishing process?  What do you think has been your greatest lesson in the journey thus far?

Favorite part of writing? I love research and travel. As a nonfiction writer, I do both. What could be more joyful than following your passions? That said, the craft is not always easy. Some days I tear my hair out over word choice. The greatest lesson? That’s a hard one…I’ve learned that I might fail today with one manuscript, but I can turn around tomorrow and succeed with another. That gives me confidence that I didn’t have when I started my career thirty years ago.

 

What piece of advice would you want to share with other writers?

Be gentle with yourself, but not with your writing. Writing takes hard work. Be willing to throw away what you thought was precious text and start over, again and again.

 11102017 - Stewart author pic

What else can we expect from you in the near future?

I have forthcoming children’s books and activity books on mindfulness and on world cultures. Look for them in 2018. I have also been writing a screenplay, so watch out Hollywood!

 

What are your passions when you’re not writing? How do you make time for your non-writing hobbies/things you love?

As I said, I LOVE to travel. When I was just seventeen, I left Boston and went to Europe. I had a Eurail Pass and jumped on trains and boats from Greece to Norway, making loads of stops in between. Later I traveled widely in Asia and lived for a time in Japan and India. My husband’s family is German, so we moved to Germany for a few years with our son.

Hiking and kayaking are my favorite sports now. New Orleans does not have mountains, so I plan vacations in the mountains when I get the chance. I still love hiking in the Green and White Mountains where I spent so much time as a kid.

When I have free time at home, I read, visit museums, go for a long bike ride, or hang out with friends and family. Sometimes I get excited about cooking vegetarian recipes I’ve never tried. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was fifteen.

 

What has been your favorite adventure during your writing career?

I have had SO many adventures. Interviewing the Dalai Lama in India has to be my favorite. I will never forget his kindness. I was so nervous to meet him, but he made the conversation easy and left me with such wisdom.

Meditating in remote monasteries and temples in Nepal, Burma, and Japan comes second.

 

While you’re writing, do you prefer music, silence, other? Please elaborate!

SILENCE! I wish I could turn off all background noise except bird calls.

 

Are there any groups, clubs, or organizations that you would recommend to other writers that have helped you in your career?

Membership in the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) has been invaluable to my career. I have attended their conferences since the 1980s.

Kindling Words is my other essential group for published children’s book writers and illustrators. I loved going on retreat with my uber-talented KW friends.

I also belong to the Author’s Guild, the Boston Author’s Club, and the Woman’s National Book Association.
