Earlier today, I was tagged on Facebook to make a list of twenty of my favorite authors in pretty quick fashion. It was hard to pick just twenty, and I had to keep in mind that while doing this little exercise, it’s definitely a list just for today, and that if I tried this exercise again next Monday, it might be a little different. Like my friend Samantha, who tagged me on her authors list, I tagged a bunch of Facebook friends on my list, encouraging them to share their own list of favorite authors. Several of the Facebook friends I tagged have responded already, and it’s been fascinating to see the similarities and differences. I must admit that I haven’t heard of some of the authors on others’ lists! I thought I was a pretty well-rounded reader, but apparently I need to get out more!
Today’s list of twenty of my favorite authors:
Chris Van Allsburg
Who’s on your list?
