Biography of Carol Gordon Ekster, author of the children's picture book "You Know What" published by Clavis Publishing, New York.


Carol Gordon Ekster

Carol Gordon Ekster grew up in Brooklyn, New York. She got a Master’s degree in reading and language at Boston University. After graduating she was a passionate elementary school teacher for 35 years. At the end of her career she began writing unexpectedly. It started like this, in Carol’s own words:

“Just after the fourth of July in the summer of 2002, I began writing a children’s picture book on the beach on the only paper available, post-its! It was like an alien took over my body as I walked to the car to get the post-its and a pen. I had never wanted to write a book before, and hadn’t planned on writing one that day. Many books later I’m still loving the process of writing. I now keep paper EVERYWHERE. I realize it’s a different way for me to talk to and teach kids.”
