Biographical Sketch

Julia Cunningham was born October 4, 1916 in Spokane, Washington. She attended art school for a year in Virginia and then worked as an editor and at various jobs before writing children's and young adult books. Her first book The Vision of Francois the Fox was published in 1960 when she was 44 years old. In 1965 Cunningham published Dorp Dead , which was seen as a ground-breaking novel of its time for its gritty realism about an orphan and his abusive guardian. She has won many honors, including the Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor for The Flight of the Sparrow , the Christopher Medal for Come to the Edge , and The Treasure is the Rose was a National Book Award finalist. Cunningham passed away in Santa Barbara, California in 2008.
