Biographical Sketch

Katherine Paterson was born October 31, 1932 in Qing Jiang, China, and came to the United States in 1940. She attended King College in Bristol, Tennessee, graduating in 1954, and received a M.A. from Presbyterian School of Christian Education in 1957. She did postgraduate study at Kobe School of Japanese Language from 1957 to 1960 and Union Theological Seminary in New York City, M.R.E. in 1962. Katherine Paterson worked as a teacher and missionary prior to writing children's books. She published her first book for children and young adults, The Sign Of the Chrysanthemum , in 1973. Like many of her later works, it is historical fiction set in the Orient and drew on Paterson's knowledge of the civilizations, languages, and history of the area, and her deep appreciation of Asian cultures. In 1977, she published Bridge To Terabithia , the story of two children's close friendship and imaginary world that is shattered when one of them dies unexpectedly and the survivor must cope with his loss and rebuild a new connection to Terabithia. The book won Katherine Paterson the first of her two Newbery Awards. She received the second Newbery Award for Jacob Have I Loved , the story of twins, Louise and Caroline, and the intense sibling rivalry Louise feels towards her twin and how she eventually overcomes the hostility and anger these feelings engender and moves on with her own life and all its possibilities and responsibilities. Many of Katherine Paterson's books deal with the search for identity and finding one's own role in a family. In all her books for children and young adults she draws on the three things she considers have shaped her life and work: her childhood in Asia, living in the American South, and her strong religious beliefs, grounded in her Presbyterian faith and its strong Calvinist foundation. Katherine Paterson won the Kerlan Award in 1983. She has also received many other awards for her writing. Biographical Source: Something About the Author , Vol. 92, p. 175-182
