Roger Sutton, on why he does what he does.

On winning the Norton Juster Award:

In my little acceptance speech I talked about how none of us–writers, librarians, teachers, reviewers–do what we do “for the children.” Or, rather, that when we do find ourselves thinking “I’m doing this for the children,” we tend to screw it up. I’m simply glad that there are children, allowing us to do the work we love.
