2019 Fox Cities Book Festival: October 7th - October 13th

Linda Vander Heyden


Linda Vander Heyden has always loved quiet country and woodlands. As a child, she spent summers at her family’s cottage, captivated by frogs and dragonflies (but not the pinching ants). Her debut picture book, Mr. McGinty's Monarchs (Sleeping Bear Press, 2016) was short-listed for the Next Generation's Green Earth Book Award and is a Sigurd F. Olsen Nature Writing Award Honor Book. She is delighted to be sharing her two latest stories with children…A Horse Named Jack and Hannah's Tall Order: An Alphabet Sandwich (Sleeping Bear Press, 2018). She lives in Wisconsin with her husband, two dogs, three cats, and a horse named Jack!
