    Author Visit: Jo S. Kittinger

    Local author Jo S. Kittinger will be here to discuss her picture book, Rosa's Bus: The Ride to Civil Rights, which takes a fresh look at the Montgomery Bus Boycott from the unique perspective of the bus itself.

    Jo began writing for children in 1991. In addition to her books, Jo has published articles in various books, newspapers, and magazines including Highlights for Children, Pockets, Boys Quest and The Flicker. She wrote numerous feature articles which appeared on the Just For Kids page of the Birmingham News and items for Harcourt Brace Educational Measurement and CTB/McGraw-Hill. Jo Kittinger also served as an editorial assistant with The Flicker children’s magazine and is actively involved with the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, currently serving as a Regional Advisor for the Southern Breeze region (AL, GA, MS) of SCBWI. She loves to visit schools, sharing her excitement for reading and writing with students. Making school author visits also allows Jo to stay in contact with her readers and promote her books. Jo also enjoys speaking at authors’ conferences.
