  1. I read about the author. Calson likes writing about people with interesting personalities who lived in dramatic times – people like John Batterson Stetson.

  2. I read about the author. She has this advice for others who want to write biographies: Search for people who strived to do something different and worthwhile.

  3. I read the “Meet the Illustrator.” The illustrator’s name is Holly Meade. She says that it is the “pleasure and challenge of the process” of creating art that made her decide to become an artist.
