As promised, Kirby shares her own personal connection to Hattie's story:
|The real Hattie with her|
niece and nephew
|Lois Thomas Wright Brown, Kirby's maternal grandmother and model for the main character in Hattie Big Sky|
And now that you've heard this "story behind the story", here is your chance to win Hattie Big Sky on CD. And yes, Kirby will find a way to autograph the CD for you or for someone you love.
