Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Katie Couric is the first woman to anchor a major nightly news program in the United States. She is a talented and well-known journalist and activist who continues to work hard for the causes that she believes in. This book chronicles Katie's life from her birth in Arlington, Virginia to her present day position as an anchor on the CBS Evening News. Readers will learn about the events and experiences that molded Katie into the caring, compassionate, and successful individual that she is today. Growing up, Katie loved reading and writing. As a young adult, she studied English and American history and worked as an editor on her college newspaper. Katie has lost several loved ones to cancer, and this has influenced her desire to help educate others about the disease as well as to raise money for cancer research. Katie Couric is a remarkable woman whose many achievements and contributions are briefly touched upon in this book. Colorful photographs and fun facts add to the book's appeal. This is part of the "Remarkable People" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley
