Félicitations, Eleanor! Quel accomplissement!
Je suis très très fière de toi pour ton premier livre… et certainement pas ton dernier! Tu as toujours été une étudiante talentueuse.
Je viendrai à B&N en septembre.
Merci pour votre très gentil message, Mme. Godin!
Eleanor Glewwe I read your book “Sparkers” and I couldn’t stop reading the book until I got to the end. I was literally up at 12:00 in the morning reading the book. I think you should make another book about Mariah’s story. I promise you I will have the whole series by the time you are done with writing the book. Please think about this. I think Azariah and Mariah are a great match. ( #am I right)
I’m so glad you enjoyed Sparkers! There will in fact be a companion book. It’s not Marah’s story, but she appears in it.
Love to read!
I have read this AWESOME book and I loved it. I have one question about Mariah, what was the name of the peice she did for the auditions?
I’m so glad you enjoyed Sparkers! I don’t actually know the name of the piece Marah plays at her audition. The composer is Shevem, but that’s all I decided.
I loved Wildings! Good writing, interesting (and timely) concept, and something else fantastic that I don’t want to spoil, but that has to do with the manner of social change. Thank you. I loved it and now I have to read Sparkers.
Thank you so much! I’m really glad you enjoyed Wildings.
I loved your book Sparkers. But you have to make a second book!
Thank you so much, Haley! There actually is a second book, a companion called Wildings.
I loved both books and cannot wait for another! Please say there will be another —
Thank you, I’m so glad you enjoyed them!
I’m reading the book: “Sparkers” and the way you describe details about how people look is so amazing, I have a clear vision of how well you describe certain events and it just makes it so easy to understand things that happen, not a lot of authors can do that. I look forward to reading your book and I hope you gain more recognition because your books are outstanding!
Someone at school recommended Sparkers to my 4th grade granddaughter in Duluth. She recommended it to me. Thanks for such a riveting tale. Marah is a character who provides the kind of inspiration all kids should have. I’ll be looking for more of your writing. Many thanks.
Thank you for your kind words! There is a companion book to Sparkers, Wildings, which you and your granddaughter might enjoy.
Hey, I really enjoy your books. Why do do many characters have Jewish names? Is there any significance to which babes you choose? Like Levi for Asser Levi?
Thank you! The Jewish names were an aesthetic choice, essentially. I’ve written a couple blog posts that talk a little about this: https://eleanorglewwe.com/2014/01/15/musings-on-character-naming/ and https://eleanorglewwe.com/2015/08/13/on-naming-and-diversity-part-ii/
Thanks! It’s funny you choose Levi, as I mentioned in my first post. Asser Levi was a real person who stood up for equality between Jews and Christians. I made him a character in my own book.
I didn’t know of Asser Levi before you mentioned him. Thank you for sharing!
