Biography Today: Profiles of People of Interest to Young Readers. Author Series, Volume 5.
Harris, Laurie Lanzen, Ed.; Abbey, Cherie D., Ed.
As with the regular issues of "Biography Today," this special subject volume on "Authors" was created to appeal to young readers in a format they can enjoy reading and readily understand. Each volume contains alphabetically-arranged sketches. Each entry in the volume provides at least one picture of the individual profiled, and bold-faced rubrics lead readers to information on birth, youth, early memories, education, hobbies, and honors and awards. Each entry ends with a list of easily accessible sources designed to lead the student to further reading on the individual and a current address. Obituary entries are also included and clearly marked in both the table of contents and at the beginning of the entry. Ten authors are profiled in this volume: (1) Sharon Creech; (2) Michael Crichton; (3) Karen Cushman; (4) Tomie dePaola; (5) Lorraine Hansberry; (6) Karen Hesse; (7) Brian Jacques; (8) Gary Soto; (9) Richard Wright; and (10) Laurence Yep. A series of general, places of birth, and birthday indexes is included. (BT)
