Wonder Woman: Eliza Dresang, Winner of the Scholastic Library Publishing Award
Whelan, Debra Lau
School Library Journal, v53 n8 p34-37 Aug 2007
This article features Eliza Dresang, an award-winning author, and her achievements. Dresang was responsible for making a radical shift in how teachers and parents understand modern children literature when she wrote her groundbreaking book, "Radical Change." She found the motivation to write this book after realizing how teachers and parents were not able to understand the premise behind David Macaulay's "Black and White," a picture book that won the 1991 Caldecott Awards. Dresang and fellow Florida State University professor Nancy Everhart were responsible for Project LEAD, a two-pronged program aimed at attracting more school librarians. In her spare time, Dresang also chairs the research and development committee for the Association of Library Service to Children and the Florida Children's Book Award, and is a member of Association for Library Service to Children's Notable Children's Books committee, the Jane Addams Children's Book Award committee, and the "Voices of Youth Advocates" board.
