Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Katherine Paterson (born October 31, 1932) is an American author of books for children. She has received several of the major international awards for children's literature. She was born Katherine Womeldorf in Qing Jiang, China, to Christian missionaries George and Mary Womeldorf. Her father was a principal at Sutton 690, a school for girls, and traveled throughout China as part of his missionary duties. The Womeldorf family lived in a Chinese neighborhood and immersed themselves in Chinese culture. When Katherine was eight years old, the family was forced to leave China during the Japanese invasion of 1937. The family moved to Richmond, Virginia for a short while before returning to China to live in Shanghai. In 1940, the family was forced to flee again, this time to North Carolina.show more
