Student reporters from DVE-News/TV of Delaware Valley Elementary School of Milford PA interview Rebecca Stead at the National Book Festival. Stead has been writing since childhood but became a lawyer before pursuing a professional writing career. Her first novel was “First Light,” which The New York Times reviewed very favorably. Her second and current novel, “When You Reach Me” (Random House Children’s Books) received the 2010 Newbery Medal, one of the most prestigious honors in children’s literature.
