Christopher Paul Curtis Biography

Christopher Paul Curtis made an outstanding debut in children's literature with The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963, named a Newbery Honor Book and a Coretta Scott King Honor Book. His second novel, Bud, Not Buddy, won the Newbery Medal and the Coretta Scott King Award.

Christopher Paul Curtis was born in Flint, Michigan, the setting of many of his books. He was a great reader, but as a youth, he could not find books that "were about me." After high school, Christopher Paul Curtis spent 13 years on the assembly line of Flint's historic Fisher Body plant, hanging 80-pound car doors on Buicks. This left him with an aversion to getting in and out of large automobiles— especially Buicks! He attended college at night and wrote during his breaks to escape the noise of the factory. He wrote his first book, The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963, in longhand in the children's room of the Windsor Public Library. Since then, he has gone on to write 8 more books and now speaks about writing and the creative process.
