Annie Barrows

Amy Perl Photography

Annie Barrows has done none of the things in "The Best of Iggy," her newest book. As a kid, Barrows was good and sweet and well-behaved. All the time, she was good. At least, no one ever caught her doing anything bad, which is the same as being good. As an adult, Barrows attended the University of California, Berkeley, and received a bachelor's degree in medieval history and went on to receive her master's of fine arts in creative writing from Mills College. She's the author of over 10 literary works for children and adults, including "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society." Currently, she resides in Northern California with her husband and two daughters.
