Meet the Author: Ruta Sepetys 

#1 New York Times Bestselling Author and Winner of the Carnegie Medal 

Ruta Sepetys was born and raised in Michigan in a family of artists, readers, and music lovers.

Her award-winning historical novels are published in more than 60 countries and have received over 40 literary prizes.

Why Choose Large Print for Your Students?

Large print is a simple literacy solution proven to help students improve their reading skills and become more confident readers.

In a national study conducted by Project Tomorrow®, over half of middle and high school students reported they enjoyed reading more when they were reading large print books. When asked how large print helped improve their reading experiences, 57 percent of middle school students said they did not get distracted, and 65 percent of high school students said they were less likely to lose their place on the page while reading large print.
