Glorious Days: An Interview with Bruce Coville

Bruce Coville was born on May 16, 1950 in Syracuse, NY. As a young man he often got into trouble for skirting chores to duck away and read everything from Mary Poppins to Doctor Doolittle. As Coville grew up he held many odd jobs: grave digger, toymaker, cookware salesman, just to name a few. Eventually he became an elementary school teacher, teaching second and fourth graders.
