Interview with Jeanne Birdsall

I love this interview with the author of The Penderwicks, who won the National Book Award this year.

I especially love when she describes spending a year and a half re-writing her book for an editor who had expressed interest - but offered NO contract - only to have the editor tell her she'd wrecked it. Birdsall reminds writers to follow their own instincts about their work.
