Biography

Louise Hawes

Louise Hawes has written books for readers of all ages, including ROSEY IN THE PRESENT TENSE, WAITING FOR CHRISTOPHER, THE VANISHING POINT, and BLACK PEARLS. Her work has won awards from Bank Street College, the NJ Council on the Arts, the New York City Public Library, the Children’s Book Council, the Independent Booksellers Association, the International Reading Association and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Louise has written poems from the time she could form letters, but poetry has always been something she kept to herself --- a sort of emotional timeline and diary. THE LANGUAGE OF STARS marks the first time she’s “gone public” with her poems. A tribute to Frost, one of her favorite poets, it is a sort of “debut novel” for an author who’s written several well-loved books but never one so close to her heart.

By the end of the party, the whole cottage is trashed --- and when the partygoers are caught, they’re all sentenced to take a summer class studying Rufus Baylor’s poetry...with Baylor as their teacher. Through his classes, Sarah starts to see her relationships and the world in a new light --- and finds that maybe her happy ending is really only part of a much more interesting beginning.
