The Next Letter for Kids: Irene Latham


Exciting news: The next Letter for Kids, going out this Thursday, is from Irene Latham!

Poetry editor of the Birmingham Arts Journal, Irene has written two novels for kids: Leaving Gee’s Bend and Don’t Feed the BoyDear Wandering Wildebeest, forthcoming in 2014, is her third collection of poetry—but her first collection of poetry for young readers. Not bad for someone who, according to her bio, “didn’t take a single writing class in college”!

Irene has lived all over the South (and in Saudi Arabia!) and currently resides in Birmingham, Alabama, with her husband and three sons.
