Carrie Finison

Carrie Finison began her literary career at the age of seven with an idea, a box of markers, and her father’s typewriter. She has been writing off and on ever since, though she has (somewhat regretfully) traded in the typewriter for a laptop. Her picture books include Dozens of Doughnuts, illustrated by Brianne Farley (Putnam, 2020), and Don't Hug Doug, illustrated by Daniel Wiseman (Putnam, 2021). Her poems and stories for children have appeared in Babybug, Ladybug, High Five, and Highlights magazines. She lives outside Boston with her husband, son, daughter, and two cats who permit her to write in their cozy attic office.

Carrie Finison's video presentation will be released at 11:00 a.m. on September 26, and is about 15 minutes long.
