Kate Beaton on NPR's Morning Edition; Wins Brooklyn Book Fest's Fan Favorite Author Award; More Interviews


Kate Beaton was featured on NPR's Morning Edition today in a delightful interview where she discusses the Kennedy men and women from history who didn't get their due. Audio is now up online.


In other Kate Beaton news, she won the AT&T fan favorite award at last week's Brooklyn Book Festival. As part of her award, she was able to donate $3500 to the literary/literacy charity of her choice, and so she donated the money to 826 NYC. Apologies to the other authors in attendance, oh, just like Joyce Carol Oates, Jhumpa Lahiri and others. No snark intended, it's just amazing! And with Dan getting a Pen Award, Seth getting a Harbourfront Award and now Kate withe this Festival Award, who is next?
