Sister James Bernard, my first grade teacher, taught me how to read. Our class had 60 children (yes) and we went up and down the long rows, taking turns reading aloud. There was absolutely no reading ahead, which was torture. I was always dying to know What happened next? (though with Dick and Jane, the answer was usually, Not much.) As I grew up, I began to wonder not only what happened, but why, and much much later,inhabiting other people's stories wasn't enough. I began to make my own.

Congratulations to your son—can't wait to meet him! FOX STREET was inspired by an actual incident here in Cleveland, where developers and the mayor planned to use eminent domain to demolish a small working class neighborhood and replace the homes with high-end condos and retail. The neighborhood fought back! I followed the conflict from a distance, and began to imagine what it would be like to be a 10 year old girl living on one of those streets, all her life contained there. Mo's losing her mother, her sister Dottie, Mercedes and Da, the quest for the fox: all that came from my imagination (though when I was little, my friends and I did have a secret hide-out/clubhouse in a nearby field!). Hope that answers the question—and see you soon!(less)

I’ll be there for two days, working and learning with hundreds of teachers and librarians who make children and literacy the center of the universe. Can’t think of a more hopeful place to be right now. I’ll share when I come home.

“The daisies and buttercups nodded in the breeze, like skinny-necked old ladies listening to dance music.

What if necessary evil had an opposite? This is what it would be. This unnecessary good.

For the first time in days, Mo smiled.”
Tricia Springstubb, What Happened on Fox Street

“Being a thinker was a various thing. Sometimes you felt like a turtle, with a nice, private built-in place to shelter. Other times it was like having a bucket stuck on your head, making the world clang and echo and never stop.”
Tricia Springstubb, What Happened on Fox Street

“Perhaps appearances deceive, and she is stronger than she looks.”
