Essential Authors for Children & Teens Series


Through the creation of memorable characters, compelling story lines, precisely-wrought style, and universal themes, great authors have the power to make a lasting impact on individual lives and entire cultures. The stories of influential writers are often as compelling as the tales they tell and the sentiments they arouse through the written word. These absorbing volumes survey the lives of hundreds of writers, both past and present, to whom readers are indebted for some of the greatest works of literature across genres.
