Blowing the Horn: Postscript

Susan Cooper. Photo: Tsar Fedorsky. I’ve been here before. Long ago, in October 1974, when I was thirty-eight years old, the handsome fiftieth-anniversary issue of The Horn Book Magazine ended with a little two-page tribute from me. It was titled “A Love Letter to the Horn Book.” And it did...

Blowing the Horn: The Hope Machine

1

Blowing the Horn: the Benevolence of Crickets

As a wide-eyed debut author in the century before this one, I had a kind of breathless regard for The Horn Book Magazine. It was partly the trim size, which somehow gave it a booklike heft and purpose. It was also the infrequency of its appearances — just six times...
      

Blowing the Horn: The Gold Issue: (and why a glow-in-the-dark Horn Book is NOT a good idea)

It was a glistening gift that sparked an unforgettable celebration. In 2019, as the Coretta Scott King Book Awards approached their ­fiftieth anniversary, I called Horn Book Editor in Chief Roger Sutton with an idea: to create a commemorative issue solely devoted to the history, legacy, and future of the...
