Johanna Hurwitz

Author's Bio

In addition to writing 75 children's books, I am a former children's librarian. Thus I very much enjoy meeting with groups of students, teachers, or parents. I have spoken all over the USA and at international schools in Europe, South Africa, Morocco, India and elsewhere. I can only speak in English but whatever the locale, children are children and it is a wonderful experience for me and for them too.
