M.T. Anderson profile

David Mehegan talks to M.T. Anderson for the Boston Globe. Mehegan opens his article with "like his protagonists, he's a character study." Why? Mehegan explains:
  • "In his younger days, M.T. Anderson was inclined to be solitary and sometimes made choices that went against the expectations of others -- like dropping out of Harvard. But his feel for that kind of person became the heart of his writing career and has won for him the 2006 National Book Award for young people's literature."

Also, in the Boston Globe, adults like pop-up books.
