Amy Rebecca Tan still has her copy of Beverly Cleary's Henry Huggins from the 1970s and her copy of S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders from the 1980s. They are in tatters but they are still readable. She is thrilled to be selling books today that readers will treasure for decades, even after the covers fade and the pages fall out. Amy is also an author and a librarian. HarperCollins published her debut middle grade novel, A Kind of Paradise, on April 30, 2019, and her second middle grade novel, Summer at Meadow Wood, on May 19, 2020.
