I would like to talk about MY dream panel of authors. Gosh, this is difficult to narrow down to just a few authors!! Even as I write this post, I keep thinking of another author to place on my panel. I have read so many books as a child and adult that have had such an impact on my life - changing my perspective, affecting my emotions, and just simply providing me a place of respite from the stresses of life. (This is definitely a dream panel, considering three out of the four authors are no longer living.)
My dream panel of authors would be: Laura Ingalls Wilder, Frank McCourt, Beverly Cleary, and Anne Frank.
Each one of these authors has provided me with an incredible, unrepeatable reading experience as I lost myself between the cover(s) of their books. My experience with literature was forever changed after reading the words of these authors.
These are the questions I would pose to each author on the panel:
- What are your favorite pieces of literature?
- How has the written word (yours or someone else's) changed your life?
- What advice would you offer to aspiring writers?
Which authors (living or dead) would be on your dream panel? What questions would you ask them?
