Simmons alums unite!

In celebration of my Simmons classmate Anna Staniszewski’s new book release, I thought perhaps we could make a list of children’s and young adult books by Simmons College children’s lit program alumnae. (The women’s college is open to guys in the grad programs, but I think most of the alums who have been published are women. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.)

I only know of a few, but I bet my Simmons friends out there can add to this list!

Anna Staniszewski, My Very UnFairy Tale Life

Kristin Cashore, Graceling, Fire, and the forthcoming Bitterblue

Jo Knowles, Lessons from a Dead Girl, Jumping off Swings, and Pearl

Karsten Knight, Wildefire

Juana Dehesa, Pink Doll (Mexico)


Who else? And make sure to congratulate Anna on her book’s publication!

  1. Thanks, Stacy!! Here are a couple more Simmons folks to add to the list:

    Recent MFA grad Karsten Knight, author of WILDEFIRE and recent MFA grad Juana Dehesa whose novel, PINK DOLL, was recently published in Mexico.

    Go, Simmons!

  2. I am a prospective Children’s Lit/Writing for Children student at Simmons, and an alum from undergrad. Looks like I’ll be in great company.

  3. Hooray for Simmons alum! I miss grad school like it was a finger. I’d love to see a list like this curated and expanded, too! I know Amy Cherrix (’08-’11) had considered doing something like this…I’ll send her your way!
