Trisha Speed Shaskan – Local Children’s Book Author

Details:

Trisha Speed Shaskan is a local children's book author. She has written over 40 books for children. She lives in the Twin Cities with her husband, Stephen Shaskan, who is also a children's book author and illustrator. Trisha's most recent book is The Ittty-Bitty Witch:

Betty can’t wait to be a first-grade witch. But on the first day of school, her classmates start calling her “Itty Bitty” because she’s small and still uses her kinder-broom. Betty doesn’t like the nickname—or how it makes her feel itty-bitty inside. So she comes up with a BIG idea to prove herself: winning the Halloween Dash.

We love our wonderful community of local children's book authors in Minnesota. Minnesota kids books cover all types of books from fiction to nonfiction. There are books about penguins, books about the ocean and, of course, books about Minnesota. Whatever you are looking for, chances are we have something great coming out of our great state.

Historically, While we Minnesotan's have to share Laura Ingalls Wilder with several other states, we do get to claim Wanda Gag, author of Millions of Cats, and Maud Hart Lovelace, author of the Betsy-Tacy books and the inspiration for the Maud Hart Lovelace Awards.

Three Reasons to Add Books by Minnesota Children's Book Authors to Your Own Bookshelves:

Besides the fact that they are producing some very high quality books for kids, there are some great reasons to add these books to your own bookshelf:

  1. You can often get your books autographed at book releases and other author events.
  2. Sometimes these local book authors do school visits.
  3. If you like the hunt of collecting used books, I've had really good luck finding autographed copies of these books when hitting the thrift stores. It's always exciting to find a book by someone local, but even more so, when I open the cover and find an autograph.
