    I keep thinking D is Beverly Sills but I’m told otherwise.

  2. What? I’m finally catching up on all these posts and this is the last I got to, and all the OTHER posts were all figured out, but not this one? Does this force me to guess the only one I think I might be right about, c= Katherine Paterson?

    Because I really just wanted to see if anyone knew A, because I have a feeling I know her but I CAN’T GET IT.

    D reminds me of Diana Wynne Jones, but I don’t think it actually is. Just a weird bias in my head.

    B=Marilyn Singer?

    Oops, not Marilyn Singer… Marilyn *Nelson*

  5. Katie Bircher Katie Bircher says:

    Katherine Paterson and Marilyn Nelson are correct (congrats!). Keep guessing on the other two, though!

  6. Katie Bircher Katie Bircher says:

    A hint for Lady A: Not only has she been honored for fiction by the BGHB committee, she’s also received a Prairie Music Award for best jazz album!
