More About Peg Kehret

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Peg Kehret was born in Wisconsin, grew up in Minnesota, spent fourteen years in California, and now lives with her husband in Washington State. They have two grown children, four grandchildren, one dog, and one cat.

Peg's novels for children are regularly recommended by the American Library Association, the International Reading Association, and the Children's Book Council. She has won many state -young reader- or -children's choice- awards. Peg's characters are ordinary kids who find themselves in exciting situations and who use their wits to solve their problems. There is usually humor as well as suspense in her books. A long-time volunteer at The Humane Society, she often uses animals in her stories.

Before she began writing books for children, Peg published plays, short stories, articles, and two books for adults. She is a frequent speaker at conferences for librarians and teachers.

At the age of twelve, Peg had polio and was paralyzed from the neck down. Because she can remember that experience and her year of recovery so vividly, she finds it easy to write in the viewpoint of a twelve or thirteen year old. Most of her main characters are that age. Her autobiography, Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio, won the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators, and the PEN Center USA West Award for Children's Literature.

When she is not writing, Peg likes to watch baseball, bake cookies, and pump her old player piano.

Peg Kehret currently resides in Redmond, in the state of Washington.

acting natural  Sep 15, 2001
awsome book! Great for acting in plays, or speech team. I haven't bought it, but i'v read it. hoping to buy it now on this site. A+++++ book. some are funny scripts, others more not as funny, some are both!
Something for Everyone  Jun 2, 2000
Excellent source! As a drama director for a Girl Scout theater group, it's often difficult to locate material that appeals to pre-teen to teen aspiring actors. This book is full of great scripts that kids really relate to and enjoy presenting. I recommend that all teachers, drama instructors and youth leaders put this book at the top of the pile.
An excellent arrangement for teens to pick from.  May 3, 1999
I am a Theater Arts teacher and I have trouble finding material that my students can relate to, but when I stumbled upon this book, I was amazed at how well my kids could perform with this material. It just clicked with them!
