NOTE: My site suffered a traumatic injury on Thursday, Oct. 18. It received quick treatment, and it’s mostly in good shape except for a few cosmetic things. I expect it to be fully healed by next week, but if you run into anything odd or nonfunctional, please click the envelope icon at the top of the page and let me know. Thank you so much!
I’m children’s author Laura Purdie Salas! I write for kids and teachers. If you’ve found me, you probably are part of the world of words. You might be a writer, an educator, a reviewer, or an editor. Or, of course, a reader! I believe everyone can be a reader and a writer, and we can work together to make that true for all kids. Instead of a handshake, I’m saying hi with about 30 pictures of my books, poems, projects, and events. (If you hover the cursor over a picture, it will pause it. For many of the slides, if you click on one, it will lead to more info on my site.) Feel free to explore the links in the menu above and the sidebar to the right to learn more about me and my writing life. Thanks!
