Ann Braden writes books about kids trying to stand up for themselves even when life is hard. Her newest middle grade novel FLIGHT OF THE PUFFIN prompted a coast-to-coast read aloud with over 30,000 readers in over 700 locations nationwide taking part. Her debut novel THE BENEFITS OF BEING AN OCTOPUS was named one of NPR’s Best Books of 2018 and has appeared on more than a dozen state lists. Ann founded the Local Love Brigade, which sends love postcards to those who are facing hate. She also founded GunSenseVT, a grassroots group focused on championing the common ground on the issue of guns in Vermont, which helped pass landmark gun violence prevention legislation. Previously a middle school teacher, Ann lives in southern Vermont with her husband, two kids, and two insatiable cats.
