December Author of The Month for Home School


Eve Bunting

Anne Evelyn Bunting  was born on December 19, 1928 in Ireland and has written more than 250 books in both fiction and non-fiction about many subjects. Many of her stories are set in Ireland, where she grew up.  As a young married mom, she immigrated to the US with her family and attended college where she first enrolled in a creative writing course. She became inspired to write about Ireland and her country’s history and her first published story was about an Irish folktale about a young man who outsmarted a mean giant. This gave her confidence to continue writing and today she is listed among the top 100 authors by The Educational Paperback Association.
