Anna Crowley Redding

Print: A Bookstore is proud to be working with Maine author and Emmy-award winning reporter, Anna Crowley Redding, in support of her nonfiction books for young readers.

Before diving into the deep end of writing for children, Anna Crowley Redding’s first career was as an Emmy-award winning investigative television reporter, anchor, and journalist. The recipient of multiple Edward R. Murrow awards and recognized by the Associated Press for her reporting, Anna now focuses her stealthy detective skills on digging up great stories for kids—which, as it turns out, is her true passion.

The reviews for Anna’s debut nonfiction Google It: A History of Google are in!

“Investigative journalist Redding does an admirable job of chronicling Larry and Sergey’s amazing successes and will inspire young people to follow in their ingenious footsteps. It’s more comprehensive than other books for young readers about Google’s founders, with energetically written short chapters, interesting facts, graphics, and photos” ―Booklist, starred review

“This readable and breezy history of the tech behemoth [is] An appealing and timely look at a universally relevant subject and a good fit for STEAM-related reading lists.” ―School Library Journal

“This chronological history of the first two decades of Google is attractively packaged to appeal to a teen audience. … Humorous accounts of Google’s unpretentious beginnings as a student project, and its early years as a bare-bones startup in a friend’s garage will intrigue teens who dream of growing their own projects into software and devices used by millions.” ― VOYA

And Anna’s follow up, Elon Musk: A Mission To Save the World was named a BEST STEM BOOK by the National Science Teachers Association for 2020.

Her first two picture books released in 2020, Rescuing the Declaration of Independence and Chowder Rules!

Anna’s work has been published in three languages and have been chosen as Junior Library Guild selections. Anna and her boys live outside of Portland, Maine. Anna is represented by Ammi-Joan Paquette of the Erin Murphy Literary Agency.
