Biographical Sketch

Nancy Garden was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on May 15, 1938. Because her family moved a great deal, she attended elementary schools in New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. She earned an M.F.A. from Columbia University in 1961, and an M.A. in 1962. After working in theater and teaching at Hunter College, she began working as an editor for a commercial editing firm, then for Scholastic magazines and Houghton-Mifflin, while beginning her career as an author of young adult books.

Her first titles were mostly nonfiction, but soon she began to focus on fiction of several kinds, including mystery, fantasy, and young adult, which led to her involvement with book censorship issues. Her book Annie on My Mind became the subject of a federal court case in 1995 and was eventually returned to the school library shelves. Since then Garden has written about and continues to advocate against book censorship. She has won the ALA Best Books, ALA Best of the Best, and ALA Best Books for Young Adults awards, among other awards.
