Insights from Illinois Authors: A Conversation with Meg Fleming By Ronda J. Mitchell
A statewide project promoting reading for Illinois citizens, Illinois Reads annually selects six books in each of the six different age categories ranging from read-to books for infants to adult readers. It is a project of the Illinois Reading Council (IRC), with over 4,000 members across the state. It was introduced in March 2013 to encourage everyone to read books by Illinois authors.
When the IRC and Illinois Reads Honorary Chairman, Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White, announced the 2019 book titles, they selected Ready, Set, Sail! as one of the titles for birth through age 4! Meg Fleming teaches voice lessons and was a former K-12 music teacher. She graduated from the University of Illinois–Champaign-Urbana School of Music. Meg writes from her home outside of San Francisco, where she lives with her husband, three children, and their dog.
