Gae Polisner is the award-winning author of seven novels for young and young-at-heart readers including the multi-award winning THE MEMORY OF THINGS which is used in schools around the country. A family law attorney and mediator by trade, but a writer by calling, Gae lives on Long Island with her husband, two sons, and a suspiciously-fictional-looking small dog she swore she’d never own. She is an avid swimmer and, when not writing, can be found in the open waters of the Long Island Sound. Her newest book, CONSIDER THE OCTOPUS, an environmental farce, has garnered glowing reviews including a star from Kirkus and a 9/10 from TIME Magazine for Kids. You may follow her on twitter and Instagram @gaepol, on facebook at gaepolisnerauthor, and find her books wherever books are sold.
CONSIDER THE OCTOPUS, a poignant and hilarious environmental farce that takes place on a research ship near the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, coming from Henry Holt/Macmillan April 5, 2022!
