Author CANDACE FLEMING to visit GW on Mar 10

Candace Fleming awarded herself the Newbery Medal in fifth grade after scraping the gold sticker off the class copy of The Witch of Blackbird Pond and pasting it onto her first novel—a ten-page, ten-chapter mystery called Who Done It? She’s been collecting awards (her own, not Elizabeth George Speare’s) ever since. Today, Candace is the versatile and acclaimed author of more than forty books for children and young adults including The Los Angeles Times Book Prize honor book The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion, and the Fall of the Russian Empire and her forthcoming The Rise and Fall of Charles Lindbergh. We are pleased to welcome Ms. Fleming as an author-in-residence in Ridgewood. She will be visiting all nine schools over a two week period.
