Rebecca Stead is the celebrated author of When You Reach Me, winner of the 2010 John Newbery Medal. The novel, partially inspired by Stead’s favorite childhood book, A Wrinkle in Time, became a New York Times Notable Book and hit the bestseller lists of The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and USA Today. Centered around timely coming-of-age themes, the novel is a mystery set in the gritty reality of New York City in 1979, with glimpses into the future. The New York Times Book Review writes, “Every word, every sentence, has meaning and substance … [in this] smart and mesmerizing book.”

Stead’s first novel, First Light, a Junior Library Guild selection, is set during a scientific expedition to Greenland and touches on the challenge of climate change.
