>> From The Library of Congress in Washington, DC >> Member of the Washington Post Sunday outlook section. The post is very, very proud to be a charter sponsor of the festival again this year. Before we get started I need to inform you that the pavilions presentations are being filmed for the Library of Congresses website and for their archive. Please be mindful of this as you enjoy the presentation. In addition, please do not sit on the camera risers that are located in the back of the pavilion. Thank you. It is my great pleasure to be introducing Margaret Peterson Haddix today. [ Applause ] >> Margaret grew up on a farm in Ohio and after graduating from Miami University worked for several years as a newspaper editor and reporter. Her years as a journalist who covered fact helped pave the way for her fiction in a number of ways not least by making her an astonishing fast productive writer. Today she is the author of more than twenty books for kids and teens. They include <i>Running Out of Time</i>[HC1], <i>Mrs.</i> <i>Dunphrey</i>, <i>The Shadow Children </i>series and <i>Found </i>, which is the first book in a new series called <i>The Missing</i>. Her books have been honored with The International Reading Associations Children's book award and The American Library Associations Best Book and Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers Notations among other awards and citations. Her two most recent books are<i> into the Gauntlet</i>, the tenth and final volume in the thirty nine clue series and <i>Claim to Fame</i>. <i>Claim to Fame</i>. <i>Claim to Fame</i> tells the story of Lindsey Scott, a teenager who, as a young child, was the star of a hit TV show, but who withdrew from the public eye after what looked like a nervous breakdown. Now at 16 she's back in the news with a tabloid newspaper claiming that shes being held hostage by her Father. The truth turns out to be quite different. Reviewers have hailed the <i>Claim to Fame</i> as a thought provoking story laced with themes of transcendentalism, self-centeredness and in the importance of connectivity. The bulletin in the center for children's books has this to say. Haddix's characters are as usual superbly drawn and Lindsey's struggle to shape her identity independent of what others think of her will surely resinate with many young readers. Please join me in welcoming Margaret Peterson Haddix. [ Applause ] >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: Thank you. I actually have an even newer book, which somehow I think that information was neglected to be given to somebody but I'm no promoting <i>Sabotage</i>, which is the third book in <i>The Missing series</i> and I'm discovering that its very difficult to talk about a third book in a series when sometimes people don't know anything about the series as a whole. So I'm kind of backing up and explaining a little bit about the first book, which is called <i>Found</i> and the way I got that idea for that particular book and the series as a whole was all because I feel asleep on an airplane. And I woke up just as the plane was starting to land. And because I had been very tired and it was along trip I was totally disoriented when I woke up. I could not remember where I had been, couldn't remember where I was going and in that very first instant of waking up I really wasn't even sure of who I was so I was really confused. Now fortunately it was not a case of long term amnesia. In a few minutes, once I was fully awake, I remembered who I was, were I was going, were I'd been, I was fine but I was really fascinated by that moment of just total disorientation and total confusion. And as an author anytime that there's something that really fascinates me, I kind of automatically think how can I put that in a book? And so I started thinking about the fact that as an adult any time I fly on an airplane I have to have some form of identification, either a passport or a driver's license or something like that. But kids are allowed to fly on airplanes without identification. And so I started thinking that there could be a kid or an entire group of kids who were disoriented and confused on an airplane and if there weren't any adults with them who knew who they were how would anybody know? And the more I thought about this idea the more it evolved and changed and pretty soon I wasn't just thinking about as kid or group of kids being lost and disoriented on an airplane I was thinking about a bunch of babies showing up out of nowhere and nobody knowing who they were. And so that is how the first book in this series <i>Found</i> begins. A plane lands at an airport in the midwest and its not scheduled to land and nobody knows what its doing there and they try to talk to the pilot, pilot doesn't respond so finally somebody just walks onto the airplane and discovers that there's not a single adult on the entire plane but every seat in the passenger section is full. Every seat contains a baby. And then the action skips ahead thirteen years and there are these two thirteen year old boys name Jonah and Chip who in the course of talking to each other discover that both of them were adopted as infants and neither of them knows anything about their birth parents. And in Jonahs case he doesn't think that's a big deal. He's always known he was adopted, his attitude is kind of like well so what. But then he and Chip both start getting these mysterious letters. And the first letter that they get says, "You are one of the missing," and that's all it says and they don't know what this means. They don't know if it's a prank, they don't know if they should take it seriously, they're just kind of freak out by the whole thing. Then they get the second letter and the second letter says, "Beware they're coming back to get you". And then a lot of other things happen in the book but I won't tell you what they are because it would ruin it if you haven't read the book. I will tell you that after that<i> The Missing</i> becomes a time travel series and in the second book, which is called <i>Scent</i> Jonah and Chip and Jonahs younger brother Katherine and another boy whose name is Alex all go back to the year 1483 together. And I can tell you having done a lot of research about the year 1483 that that is not at all the year that I would choose to go back to if I had the power to travel through time, mainly because I happen to like indoor plumbing. [ Laughter ] >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: And the middle ages were just not a very pleasant time to live in and very dangerous including dangerous to my poor characters and then in this book I'm moved to another time period and another story of children in danger. And it revolves around the Virginia Dare story and I'm just curious if anybody would raise their hand if you learned about Virginia Dare when you were in school. Okay I saw this boy back here had his hand up immediately. Let's see the hands, who learned about it? This is very interesting because I just started my book tour promoting this book in California and evidently that Virginia Dare story is not at all in the curriculum in California. So I'm saying does anybody know who Virginia Dare is? And I have classrooms full of blank looks looking at me so I have to tell the whole story but I can tell here many of you already know this story. It's a fascinating story that Virginia Dare was the first English child born in North America because she was born in the first English colony, which was not terribly far away from here in what is now North Carolina. And the funny thing about her is I kind of think of it as being like if now a days we had a colony started on Mars. And I think that if there was a colony started on Mars if there were a child who was the very first child born in Mars we would know everything about this child's entire existence. That pretty much every minute of her life would probably be filmed and recorded and when it got to be the little Martians baby's first birthday it would be like oh the first child born on Mars is now one year old and then you'd see her fifth birthday and when she graduated from high school you'd know exactly how that went. Well in 1587 when Virginia Dare was the first English child born in the Roanoke Colony it was a little bit harder to keep tract of people. In fact we really only know two things about her. We know that she was born, we know that she was baptized and that's it because the main person who was keeping tract of her and everything else in the Roanoke colony was her Grandfather who left when she was only about nine days old went back to England to get more supplies and intended to come right away to help his colony but because of various problems including the Spanish Armada it was three years before he was able to come back and see how his colony was doing. And so finally he got back to Roanoke Island to see his colony and nobody was there and there was only one word as a clue the word "croatoan" carved into a post and from that he decided that it probably meant that his entire colony had moved to a nearby island called Croatoan. And it is amazing to me that in after that nobody went to check on Croatoan to see what happened to his colony. So for the past four hundred years people have wondered what happened to Virginia Dare and the other hundred or so colonists who were in the Roanoke colony and as the more research I did about this the more I really, really, really wanted to know what really happened. And I think at the distance of four hundred years it's pretty impossible to know for sure so I got to make up all sorts of different things as possibilities and my explanation is sabotage includes things like time travel as an explanation for what happen. So I'm guessing that its probably not the most plausible explanation for what happened but I had a great deal of fun making all of that up and really hope that readers that will also enjoy the story a lot. So I think an adequate amount of time that if people want to start coming up to the microphones you can do that and you are welcome to ask about any of my books. You can ask about this series or anything else. And I will kind of bounce back and forth between the microphones. So I'll start right there. >> What was the inspiration for<i> The Shadow Children's</i> series? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: What was the inspiration for <i>The Shadow Children's</i> series?? I first started thinking about that idea because my husband and I were trying to decide whether to have a third child and this was a hard decision for us to make. When our kids were being very sweet and loving and you know wrapping their arms around us and saying we love you Mommy we love you Daddy we'd think oh its so wonderful being parents lets just have twenty kids. And then other times and I'm sure all the parents in the crowd can perhaps identify with this moment. When our kids were doing things like throwing temper tantrums because Mommy my socks are on crooked make it stop. We would think it is really hard being parents. There is no way we could have a third child. If we had three kids we'd be out numbered that would be impossible. So we'd go back and forth and it's really hard to make a decision under those circumstances so we started looking for something factual and rational to help us and so we started talking about over population and in the context of trying to make such a personal decision myself thinking about the fact that in some countries in the world people are told how many kids they are allowed to have that made me start thinking about how awful that would be and it so it made me think of the society where people are only allowed to have two kids and so Luke the main character has to hide because he's a third child. >> In <i>The Missing series</i> you were doing people like Virginia Dare would you do any of the books on Anastasia Romanov? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: The question is in <i>The Missing series</i> since I'm looking at mystery children of history like Virginia Dare would I consider doing someone like Anastasia Romanov? That is actually someone that at the beginning I very much intended to explore that story and in-between the time that I wrote the first book <i>Found</i> and the time that I'm thinking I would be writing that book there was this major news that came out of Russia, which was that they have positively identified her bones and determined that yes she was killed defiantly they know that for a fact and so that really complicates things for me. And I'm trying to figure out I think I may have a way to work around that but I haven't totally decided how that's going to work so that would probably be the sixth book in the series. I've already actually written the fourth book, which is called <i>Torn</i>. The fifth book I'm working on now, which is called <i>Cot</i> I think and that would be the sixth book and the seventh book will be the final one. But I still got a little bit of time before I have to make that decision. >> I'm thirteen and I love reading your books. When you were my age what stuff did you like to read? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: I pretty much read anything I could get my hands on when I was thirteen including cereal boxes if there wasn't anything else available. Oh really that's in there! Who knew? So I enjoyed reading a lot of older books because they belonged to my Mother or my Grandmother things like <i>Little Women</i> and <i>Anne</i> <i>and Green Gables</i> one of my favorite books was from <i>The Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler</i> by E.L. Konigsburg, which I think must be a favorite book of many people but I probably read that book about eight or nine times because I just loved it so much. >> What's your favorite book that you've written? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: What is my favorite book that I've written? I actually do not have a favorite book out of the ones that I've written because its kind of like trying to pick a favorite between my kids and I couldn't do that and its kind of the same way with the books that I feel like if I picked one of the books then the other books would get their feelings hurt. [ Laughter ] >> So I heard you just said that you're doing seven books. How do you decide to stop? Instead of like the 36 missing children you're stopping at seven. >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: You know I have had a lot of people ask me since I do mention that there were 36 babies on this plane why aren't I doing 36 books because that makes sense. And I'm thinking at a certain point it would get very difficult to write that many books so I defiantly know that I want to stop before 36 and I would much rather stop when people are still saying, "Wow we love this series," instead of, "Oh no, not another one of those books". So I kind of arbitrarily settled on seven and I'm trying to figure out the best way to work it so you get information about all 36 kids. I did in <i>Sabotage</i> it tells the story of three of the missing kids so I kind of worked it that way. I don't think I'm going to manage you know I needed a quick math here to figure out if I got three more books left and I've still got like thirty some people left. That's ten kids per book, I'm not going to succeed in doing that but I'm going to kind of throw in some information at a certain point so you do get to know what happens to all 36. >> Is there any advice you would give a kid who wants to be an author when she grows up? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: There is advice that I would give somebody who wants to be an author when she grows up. I would say two things that seem very obvious but its surprising to me how many adults don't know to follow this advice. I would say read all that you can because the more that you read the more comfortable you are with words the better you are with dealing with them. Its fun too so it's kind of a painless way to get better as a writer. I would say start writing now and write all sorts of different things. I actually wrote a lot more poetry when I was a kid than anything else but I think that helped me playing around with words and gave me a lot of experience. Keeping a journal is a wonderful thing to do because that gives you a lot of practice with taking things from real life and getting it down in the words and you'd be surprised even if you think your life is really boring now I can pretty much guarantee that you know in ten or twenty years if you go back and reread a journal that you kept as a kid you'd be like, wow, I'm so glad I wrote this and I still have this to know what my childhood was like. So that's a very good thing. In general I would also just say pay attention to things around you and think because thinking is pretty essential to writing. >> I can't believe you're giving me advice. Thank you. >> What books and TV shows and movies inspire you to write? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: Any time I read something that is really, really, really good it inspires me to write even though I think okay there's no way that what I'm writing is going to be that good but there's a great idea out there that makes me want to be more inventive myself. >> I was wondering if you were planning on starting any more series. >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: Right now I'm kind of focused on finishing this series and I have to admit this is the second series that I've done that's all mine. I also did <i>The 39 Clue</i> book that I just did one of the ten books. And I really had a hard time in-between the two series coming up with the idea for this one that I was thinking well maybe I'm just a one series person I'm not a two series person. So I'm really not trying not to put that pressure on me to try and think about what that third ones going to be yet. >> I read all <i>The 39 Clues</i> books and I just love them. Are there going to be any more, was book ten the last one or is there? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: That is a excellent question and if you would ask me that before Wednesday I would have had to be very mysterious and kind of hem and hawed and pretend like I didn't really know the answer because on Thursday it was just announced that they are going to another series that's related to <i>The 39 Clues series</i> with Amy and Dan still as the heros. But its going to be called<i> The Cahill's vs. The Vesper's</i> and it will be six books in that series. So it's not like the continuation of <i>The 39 Clues series</i> but it is defiantly another way to find more about what's happening to Dan and Amy and the other Cahill's. >> Where I live there's something called Battle of the Books, it's where they pick the best books that are more interesting to children and they use them to battle the questions. And the book that they choose by you was <i>Among the Hidden</i>. What do you think was the best fact in that that made them choose that? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: I'm sorry I didn't quite catch the last part of that question. >> What do you think was the best fact in <i>Among the Hidden</i> that would make them choose that? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: What do I think is the reason that they choose <i>Among the Hidden</i> for that? I think one of the things that I have heard from lots of kids over the years about what makes<i> Among the Hidden</i> popular is that it is something that appeals to both boys and girls. And a lot of times I know schools have trouble finding books that both boys and girls will like so that was probably something that helped it. >> Thank you. >> What was your inspiration for <i>Uprising</i>? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix:<i> Uprising</i> was the first book that I had ever written where I was not the person who came up with the original idea for the book. It was actually suggested to me by my editor that he thought there should be a young adult in that novel about the triangle shirtwaist factory fire in the early 1900's in New York City, which was a very tragic event where 146 people were killed, mainly teenage girls who worked in this factory where they generally would lock the doors as soon as the workers got there in the morning. So when a fire broke out a lot of them died. And it was an important event in history that made a change in a lot of laws that deal with how employers can treat employees. It was a very important event but obviously also very tragic and my editor had suggested that I might want to something about it because he thought it was so important. The kind of funny thing is by the time I actually wrote the book another author had written a novel about it as well for young adults called <i>Ashes of Roses</i> by Mary Jean Ash and I have heard that that's a very good book but I had gotten so deep into the research for this that I think maybe ten years or so I might be ready to read something else about it that somebody else has done but I think I need a break for awhile before that. >> What gave you the idea for <i>The Palace of Mirrors</i>? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: What gave me the idea for <i>The Palace of Mirrors</i>? Let me double check something. How much time do I have left? Are we down to five minutes? I've got time okay. It's a long story so that's why I have to check that. The inspiration for <i>The Palace</i> <i>of Mirrors</i> actually dates all the way back to when I was in high school and I grew up in a very rural area of Ohio and the big deal every summer where I grew up was the county fair. So I was very proud my senior year in high school because I got to be one of the county fair Queen attendants, which meant that every day for that week I got to wear a tiara and a sash and a frilly dress and high-heeled shoes and then walk through hog manure to give kids ribbons for their prized hogs or cows or chickens or whatever they brought to the fair. And now that I'm an adult thinking about that, I think, why did I wear open toed high healed shoes? Eww, that was gross. But at the time it was just a fun week. The week ended, I packed stuff away, went off to college very shortly after that and really stopped thinking of myself as the type of person who would ever wear a tiara and a sash. So then years after that when my daughter was in kindergarten she came home from school one day and announced that she was going to be a fairy princess for Halloween. And so I was thinking how we'd carry this costume off and I thought that tiara that I wore as a county fair Queen that would be perfect for her costume. And my next thought was I have no idea what ever happened to that tiara and this sentence just jumped into my mind and the sentence was. Somewhere in the world I have a tiara in a little box and I'd really like that sentence. I wrote it down in this writer's journal that I keep and periodically I would look at that sentence and think that would be a really good first sentence for a book. I just have no idea what the other sentences in the book would be. And eventually I figured out that the book needed to have nothing to do with county fairs but needed to be about a girl who was the true royalty of her kingdom but was not allowed to tell anyone because her life was in danger, which as you know is what happens in <i>Palace of Mirrors</i>. >> I read <i>Found and Sent</i> and I haven't read <i>Sabotage</i> so I'm not sure if it's in that book but I was wondering if you had written it in <i>Sabotage</i> or if you had already decided what Jonahs identity was? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: That is a very good question and that's a question that I get asked a lot. What is Jonahs identity? I do not reveal it in <i>Sabptage</i> and at the moment my plan is not to reveal it until the seventh book. >> Okay. >> How did you decide not to use -- like to use babies on the plane and not like children or something? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: Well the question is, how did I decide to use babies on a plane, instead of just leaving it as children. As I thought about it unless I wanted to write about a whole group of children who suddenly got amnesia all at the same time, which would be a little bit difficult to explain, I had to figure out someway to explain why they didn't remember where they came from. And baby's very fortunately for me don't remember where they came from. So that was part of my rational and actually I think its more mysterious that it's babies. >> Why did you do some of the different things that you did in <i>The final 39 Clues</i> book? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: Was the question why did I do some of the things that I did in <i>The 39 Clues</i> book. Well it's kind of a mix of some of the things I was told I needed to do because the series needed to be consistent with the things earlier that I was told that it needed to take place part of the time in England. I was told that I needed to work William Shakespeare in as the historical figure and there were a couple other things that I was told that I needed to do and other than that it was kind of what I wanted to imagine and how I could work things out. And I kind of played off the idea of things that I thought would be interesting to throw in there in England and things that I thought would be interesting to throw in there from William Shakespeare's life. And one of the things that I thought was fun when I was doing the research about William Shakespeare getting ready to write this book was that I discovered even though William Shakespeare's pretty much, that everybody almost entirely agrees that he's the greatest writer who's ever lived. But evidently he really could not spell and they have six signatures that he has done that they are pretty sure he was really the person who wrote them, none of them are spelled exactly the same way. So it's pretty funny that you know here's the greatest writer ever and he couldn't spell. Now, in his defense, during his time period there was no such thing as standardized spelling. You know pretty much everybody just spelled things however they felt like. So for you kids that meant no spelling test in William Shakespeare's time, which would have been really nice I'm sure but it also meant that it was very confusing when people tried to read things. So I thought that was a fun [inaudible] so I put that in there. There were lots of other things like that as I was doing the research I discovered that I wanted to put in. >> Where did you get your idea for <i>Just Ella</i>? >> Margaret Peterson Haddix: Where did I get my idea for <i>Just Ella</i>? Well that dates back to when my daughter was really little and she's a senior in high school now so this was many years ago and she was obsessed with fairy tales when she was about two, three, four years old. And so she could sit there for hours having me read fairly tales to her, which I was very proud that she had such an attention span and I was glad that she loved books already but reading those fairy tales to her they started really bugging me. It really bugged me that it seemed like in every single fairy tale I read to her at some point there could be a sentence that was something like and then the prince took one look at her and fell in love because she was so beautiful. And I felt like saying to my daughter okay honey if this strange guy that you've never met before comes up to you and gets down on bended knee and says, "Will you marry me"? Do not say yes right away. If he seems like he might be a decent guy, maybe you can say maybe but this whole love at first sight idea was a little bit scarey. So writing <i>Just Ella</i> was kind of my way of dealing with that and because I couldn't say all that to my daughter when she was only two or three years old so I wrote the book instead. Okay I think were done then. I'm being told by the time keeper here. So thank you very much for your great questions. >> Thanks for coming up though. So close, so close.

Haddix grew up on a farm about halfway between two small towns: Washington Court House, Ohio, and Sabina, Ohio.[2] Her family was predominantly farmers and she grew up in a family of voracious readers. Some of her favorite books growing up included E.L. Konigsburg books, Harriet the Spy, Anne of Green Gables, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Anne Frank, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, and The Little Princess.

She graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with degrees in English/journalism, English/Creative writing, and History. While in college, Haddix worked a series of jobs. She was an assistant cook at a 4-H camp, but almost every other job has been related to writing. During college, she worked on the school newspaper and had summer internships at newspapers in Urbana, Ohio; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Indianapolis, Indiana.[2]

Haddix chose to pursue fiction writing after her husband, Doug, became a news reporter, because she did not want to be his employee.[3] Her previous work as a reporter inspired her to write fiction. After documenting a wide variety of topics, she wanted to create her own plots and characters. Haddix experienced a long period of having her writing rejected by publishers before her first two books were accepted in 1995 and 1996. Her first book was Running Out of Time, published when Haddix was pregnant with her second child, and her first child was one and a half years old.[4] Her second book, Don't You Dare Read This, Mrs. Dunphrey, followed shortly after. The Summer of Broken Things, written in 2018, is Haddix’s most recently published stand-alone book.[3]

Haddix has written more than 30 books for children and teenagers, including Running Out of Time, Don't You Dare Read This, Mrs. Dunphrey, Leaving Fishers, Just Ella, Turnabout, Takeoffs and Landings, The Girl with 500 Middle Names, Because of Anya, Escape from Memory, Say What?, The House on the Gulf, Double Identity, Dexter the Tough, Uprising, Palace of Mirrors, Claim to Fame, The Always War, Game Changer, the Shadow Children series, and the Missing series. She also wrote Into the Gauntlet, book 10 in the 39 Clues series. Her books have made New York Times Best Seller lists and American Library Association (ALA) annual book lists and they have won the International Reading Association's Children's Book Award and more than a dozen state reader's choice awards.[5]

The New York Times’ best-selling author currently lives in Columbus, Ohio with her husband, Doug, and their two children, Meredith and Connor.[3]
