Hester Bass

Hester Bass grew up in a small town near Atlanta. She’s been a singer in a Boston rock band, an actress/singing telegram messenger in Manhattan, and was on The $50,000 Pyramid, with Dick Clark and Who Wants to be a Millionaire with Meredith Vieira. Hester’s love for the work of artist Walter Anderson, and her years in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, led to The Secret World of Walter Anderson, winner of the NCTE Orrbis Pictus Award. Hester's 2016 book Seeds of Freedom: The Peaceful Integration of Huntsville, Alabama received two starred reviews, is a Junior Library Guild selection, and was reviewed in the Los Angeles Times.

Hester Bass is a dream believer, goal achiever, and storyweaver. As a child, she made a list of things she wanted to do and places she wanted to go. (Her life has been all about checking things off that list.)

Bass was shaped by her mother’s love of language, her father's love of family, and books by favorite authors such as Beatrix Potter and A.A. Milne. Her first story was about a green-eyed cat. Her first job was at a wild animal park. Hester offers energetic, informative, and inspiring presentations and loves to travel from her home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
