Month End Author Spotlight: David Levithan

David Levithan

February ended and it was the end of my month filled with David Levithan books. I really enjoyed them and I am sooo glad that I picked them all up. I cannot wait to read the ones I missed and all his future books.

Just a little bio...
David Benjamin Levithan was born in 1972 and graduated from Brown University in 1994. Music plays big parts in his writing. So, his favorite songs include Death Cab for Cutie's "Transatlanticism", Dar Williams' "February", and Crowded House's "Four Seasons in One Day." He has a short factual bio on his website, but he does add that he is addicted to Dr. Pepper and My So-Called Life.
