Lisa Jean LaBanca Rogers
Lisa Rogers was inspired to write for children through her career as an elementary school librarian. Her debut picture book, 16 WORDS: WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS AND “THE RED WHEELBARROW,” (Random House/Schwartz & Wade Books), received 2 starred reviews & received the Julia Ward Howe Award from the Boston Authors Club & the Susan P. Bloom Discovery Award. A former newspaper reporter and editor, Lisa grew up on the New Jersey shore, lives outside Boston with her family, and has run the Boston Marathon four times.

HOUND WON’T GO, illustrated by Meg Ishihara, and published by Albert Whitman & Co.. was inspired by Lisa's stubborn but lovable hound.

Lisa holds a BA in English Literature from William & Mary, an MA in English from Boston College, and an MLS from Southern Connecticut State University.
