Elizabeth Enright

Elizabeth Wright Enright Gillham (September 17, 1907 – June 8, 1968) was an American writer of children's books, an illustrator, writer of short stories for adults, literary critic and teacher of creative writing. Perhaps best known as the Newbery Medal-winning author of ''Thimble Summer'' (1938) and the Newbery runner-up ''Gone-Away Lake'' (1957), she also wrote the popular Melendy quartet (1941 to 1951). A Newbery Medal laureate and a multiple winner of the O. Henry Award, her short stories and articles for adults appeared in many popular magazines and have been reprinted in anthologies and textbooks.

In 2012 ''Gone-Away Lake'' was ranked number 42 among all-time children's novels in a survey published by ''School Library Journal'', a monthly with primarily U.S. audience. The first two Melendy books also made the Top 100, ''The Saturdays (novel)'' and ''The Four-Story Mistake''. Provided by Wikipedia
