BLOG TOUR: Dear Hank Williams by Kimberly Holt

DearHankWilliams TourBanner

Kimberly Willis Holt’s long-awaited new book is being born on April 14th. I have the honor 51PLhUiBnxL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_of hosting her on the second stop of her Dear Hank Williams blog tour. Ms Holt was kind enough to field some of my questions about the Dear Hank Williams.

Many readers will recognize Ms Holt’s name from her award-winning When Zachary Beaver Came to Town.


From Macmillan:

It’s 1948 in Rippling Creek, Louisiana, and Tate P. Ellerbee’s new teacher has just given her class an assignment–learning the art of letter-writing. Luckily, Tate has the perfect pen pal in mind: Hank Williams, a country music singer whose star has just begun to rise. Tate and her great-aunt and -uncle listen to him on the radio every Saturday night, and Tate just knows that she and Hank are kindred spirits.

Told entirely through Tate’s hopeful letters, this beautifully drawn novel from National Book Award-winning author Kimberly Willis Holt gradually unfolds a story of family love, overcoming tragedy, and an insightful girl learning to find her voice.

Ms. Holt was kind enough to answer my questions I compiled as I read. Enjoy!

The pleasure was all mine!
