Michelle Kadarusman

Like Alba in The Theory of Hummingbirds, Michelle underwent a series of surgical procedures to correct congenital talipes equinovarus as a child. Like Alba, she believes in loving what you do; for her, that includes writing for children and teens, founding the literacy charity Raising Readers, and working for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, the largest literary award in Canada. Michelle grew up in Melbourne, Australia and lived in Indonesia for several years before moving to Toronto, Ontario, where she now lives with her family and one very noisy dog.
