Katherine_Paterson’s Biography

She was born in China on October 31, 1932. She was the daughter of missionaries, but they had to flee from China because of the war against Japan, settling in the United States in 1940. She obtained a degree in English at King College in Bristol, Tennessee. He then spent a year in a rural Virginia school before graduating. Later, she obtained a master’s degree and worked four years as a missionary in Japan. She and her husband, Juan, have four children (two biological and two adopted) and seven grandchildren.

His first novel was written while taking a creative writing course for adults. Some of the awards he has received are: the National Book Award (Master Puppeteer, 1976, The Great Gilly Hopkins, 1979); the John Newbery Medal (Bridge to Terabithia, 1977, Jacob Have I Loved, 1981); the Scott O’Dell Award for Historical Fiction (Jip, His Story); the Hans Christian Andersen Award (body of work, 1998); and the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Prize (2006). Katherine Paterson believes that children’s books should deal with contemporary and realistic issues, so his work is characterized by difficult issues such as the death of a loved one.

Paterson is vice-president of the National Alliance of Books and Children’s Literature , a non-profit organization that advocates for instruction, literature and libraries.

His best-known novel, A Bridge to Terabithia has been adapted twice to the cinema: one in 1985 and one in 2007. The 2007 version is a co-production of Disney and Walden Media.
