Famous Historical Fiction Writers
Lois Lowry- Lowry wrote more than 20 books. She wrote Number the Stars, which I have listed above, The Anastasia Kripnik series, The Giver, and more. She received many awards such as: the Horn Book Award, the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award, and the Mark Twain Award. She also got a Newbery Medal for her book Number the Stars. She is a groovy historical fiction in my opinion!
Laura Ingalls Wilder- Wilder was born in 1867, and lived until she was 90 years old. Laura and her family traveled across the Midwest in a covered wagon, and she wrote the Little House series based on her own life. She had a funky life style!
Daniel Defoe- Defoe was born in London, England and he lived from 1660-1731. He wrote Robinson Crusoe which was one of the first English novels, and also one of the most popular adventure stories in Western writing. His stories were very unusual. Robinson Crusoe was a radical character.... man!
