I Love Laura

Ingalls Wilder, and am thrilled to chair the committee that will select the 2007 recipient of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal, awarded by the Association for Library Service to Children for the American Library Association. The Wilder Medal "honors an author or illustrator whose books, published in the United States, have made, over a period of years, a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children." This biannual award last went to Laurence Yep in 2005; a list of previous winners can be found here. I welcome your suggestions for the committee's consideration; please email them to me here and be sure to put "LIW" in the subject line. The winner will be announced in January, 2007, but nominations close at the end of 2006, so get busy.

You don't really love Laura. You won't agree that the Little House books are "great books." However, since you are the award chair, I join McCavity in voting for Beverly Cleary. How on EARTH could Laurence Yep (whose selection was not exactly a popular choice) beat her for the award?

Elizabeth said...

Ok, so I see Beverly Clearly already won. But she should win twice! Just kidding. After thinking about Lois Lowry, Katherine Patterson, Jean Fritz and Lloyd Alexander, I have decided to "nominate" Madeline L'Engle and I will email you as you suggest in your post to suggest it.

By the way, who was Clara Ingram Judson, the second winner of the Wilder Award?

IT SEEMS MIGHTY "CONVENIENT" TO ME THAT LAURA INGALLS WILDER JUST "HAPPENED" TO BE THE FIRST TO RECEIVE THE LAURA INGALLS WILDER MEDAL. IMAGINE THE SCANDAL IF SHE'D LOST!!

Rand's joke calls to mind the Wilder scandal of some years ago, when William Holz, in THE GHOST IN THE LITTLE HOUSE, made the charge that Wilder's books were in fact written by her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane.

OOPS--that should have been end of 2005, NOT 2006. Nominations close at the end of 2005.
