Listen to a conversation with Young Adult book author, Delia Ray. Her most recent book, “Here Lies Linc”, a Junior Library Guild Selection, describes what happens when young Lincoln Crenshaw Jr. investigates a curse connected with an ominous statue in a nearby cemetery. A graduate of the Radcliffe Publishing Course, Delia Ray wrote two nonfiction books while working as an editor in Seattle. The New York Public Library selected “Behind the Blue and the Gray: The Soldier’s Life in the Civil War” for inclusion in Books for the Teen Age. “Singing Hands”, Delia’s historical novel about her deaf grandfather, was named Best Book for Young Adults by the American Library Association. Her book “Ghost Girl”, set in the Blue Ridge Mountains during the Depression, was nominated to the final master lists for Children’s Choice awards in six states.
