Kathleen Blasi is drawn to telling stories that feature quiet heroes—like Rochester’s own Hosea Missouri Taylor, Jr., (Hosea Plays On), a street musician who uses his earnings to elevate the lives of his community. Her newest release, Milo’s Moonlight Mission, celebrates connecting with nature and features budding astronaut Milo, who longs for quality time with his mother. Kathleen recently served as co-president of Rochester Area Children’s Writers & Illustrators and is former co-director of the Rochester Children's Book Festival, for which she and her co-director received the 2015 New York State Reading Association Literacy Advocate Award.
