MUF Contributor Jen Swanson makes top 50 list

Congratulations to MUF contributor and STEM coordinator Jennifer Swanson for winning a place on this amazing top-50 book list from the extra-cool ThePlanets website.

What’s even better? Jen’s book, BRAIN GAMES, (National Geographic Children’s Books, 2015) competed with adult books too–and ranked #13. The Planets describes its top choices as “A collection of the most entertaining, enlightening and educational science books ever written.”

Way to go, Jen!

Heather Murphy Capps has always had a deep appreciation for comfort and elegance. She and Claudia would have run out of money quickly together but would absolutely have been on the same page about taxis and nice restaurants. And of course, solving mysteries about beautiful art. That said, Heather also appreciates Jamie’s love of complication, which is why she spent several years living in rural Kenya and then became a television news reporter, which involved standing for hours in the middle of hurricanes and political battles. Now she’s raising middle-grade readers and writing for them. She loves to read and write books with lots of great science, magic, mystery, and adventure. Heather is the communications coordinator for Mixed-Up Files, as well as creator/curator for our We Need Diverse MG series. She is committed to creating more diversity in publishing.
