Book Bites for Kids, hosted by Suzanne Lieurance is a delightful way to interact with children's book authors, illustrators, publishers, editors, and publicists to learn more about the world of children’s writing and publishing.

We are pleased to invite you to tune in on Thursday, November 11 at 2 pm CDT, at

Book Bites for Kids to meet Pat McCarthy when she discusses her book, Heading West: Life with the Pioneers. McCarthy has been writing for children for over twenty years and has published 15 nonfiction books with several publishers, including Chicago Review Press and Enslow Publishers. A former elementary teacher, Pat enjoys spending time with kids as well as writing for them, so she still subs in elementary school. She also does school visits. Pat’s work, including fiction, nonfiction, photos and puzzles, has appeared in many children’s magazines, including Cricket, Highlights for Kids and Children’s Digest. Her latest book, Heading West: Life with the Pioneers was released by Chicago Review Press last year. She is finishing up another book for them on American Environmentalists.
