Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame

Rebecca Caudill is the Hall of Fame's first children's author. She was born in 1899 in Harlan County, the daughter of two teachers, and she became one herself. She did not publish her first book until she was 44 years old. But from then until her death in 1985, she wrote 21 more books. Many of them focused on pioneer life in Appalachia. In 1949, her middle-grade book, Tree of Freedom, was a Newberry Honor Book; 15 years later, her picture book, A Pocketful of Cricket was a Caldecott Honor Book. She spent much of her adult life in Illinois, where they now give an annual Award in her name for the most popular middle-grad book, as voted on by the kids. She once said: "The first essential in any book is that it have something significant to say. A good book sticks to your ribs."
