“Sometimes life calls on you even when you don’t raise your hand.”
Erin Entrada Kelly, Hello, Universe
2018 Newbery Medalist Erin Entrada Kelly’s bestselling book Hello, Universe celebrates friendship, bravery, being different, and finding your inner bayani (or hero in Tagalog). In addition to winning the Newbery Medal for Hello, Universe, Erin received the APALA Award for The Land of Forgotten Girls, and the Golden Kite Honor Award for Blackbird Fly.
Erin’s new book You Go First is an engaging exploration of family, bullying, spelling, art, and the ever-complicated world of middle school friendships bound together by games of Scrabble.
