Christy Ottaviano Books/Little Brown and Hach 2022
I'm talking with Robyn McGrath about her new picture book, Dolly!: The Story of Dolly Parton and Her Big Dream (Little Brown, 2022) which launched Jun 7, 2022. Robyn spent her career working with children as a dance and yoga instructor, reading teacher, school counselor, play therapist, and now . . . children’s author. Whether she’s writing fiction or nonfiction, Robyn believes that books help us navigate life experiences while fostering an understanding of self and others. Her upcoming books include There’s Always Room for One More, illustrated by Ishaa Lobo and A Mind of Her Own, The Story of Agatha Christie, illustrated by Liz Wong. Robyn lives in Austin, TX with her husband, two children, a Labrador retriever, and a friendly cat they found camping.
