Spanning Time: A Diary Keeper Becomes a Writer
By Elizabeth Yates
Foreword by: Barbara Elleman
From Goodreads: Since she first wrote down her thoughts as a young girl in 1917, Elizabeth Yates knew she wanted to become a professional writer. Her struggle to fulfill her dream now gives readers a fascinating look at the tumultuous decades of the early twentieth century.
Spanning Time combines all of Elizabeth Yates’ early diaries into one edition, providing an in-depth and touching look at more than 30 years of the author’s life, from her girlhood in Buffalo, New York to winning her Newbery Medal in 1951. The diaries present an appealing and inspiring picture of a young girl growing up in the early part of the century who made books and reading an integral part of her life. Today’s would-be writers will be moved to begin their own autobiographies while those without the inclination to write will find all the elements of a good story contained within these pages.
