Meg Kearney is an award-winning poet whose books for young people include the picture book Trouper, illustrated by E.B. Lewis (and written as a poem), as well as three novels in verse for middle-grade and young adults told in the voice of adoptee Lizzie McLane: The Secret of Me, The Girl in the Mirror, and When You Never Said Goodbye. Each novel includes a guide to its poetics and a teacher’s guide, as Meg loves to excite people of all ages about poetry and its storytelling magic. Meg’s poetry has been widely anthologized and featured on Garrison Keillor’s “A Writer’s Almanac” and U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser’s “American Life in Poetry.”
