Miss Spitfire: Reaching Helen Keller was our book pick for December 2007. Based on the real life of Annie Sullivan, Sarah Miller's debut novel received critical acclaim and lots of enthusiastic support from the readergirlz.
Now, a little over 7 years later, here are 7 fun facts Sarah shared with us about herself:
I can knit socks and crochet shawls.
I've visited Laura Ingalls Wilder's grave and slept in Lizzie Borden's bedroom.
True Grit (the one with Hailee Steinfeld) is my new favorite movie. Would you like me to recite the first ten minutes for you?
I shook hands with Rosa Parks.
I'm still afraid of the dark. (But I don't sleep with a nightlight anymore.)
The Kennedy assassination is quite possibly my next historical fascination.
