The trivia question for the day:
Our author today is known as an Australian, but she actually grew up in Africa. She recounts being the only white child at her school, and learning to write by pushing her finger in the dirt because there weren’t any pieces of paper or pencils. Now she is a retired Associate Professor of Literacy and prolific children’s author, who lives in Australia. Her children’s books and her writing books for adults are known worldwide. Do you know who this lively woman who stands out in a crowd these days not because of her skin color, but because of her brilliant red hair?
Edit: The answer is now posted.
