Mademoiselle Misfortune, 1936
Kate Seredy (pronounced Sher'-edy) was born November 10, 1899, in Budapest Hungary. She came to the United States in 1922. She began her career as a designer of book covers and greeting cards. She became a writer, as she says, by accident, when an editor suggested to her that she write a story about her own childhood in Hungary. She accepted the challenge, and this became her first book, The Good Master . Many other books followed, though Seredy never felt comfortable writing, since she says that basically she thinks in pictures. In spite of that, in 1938 she won the Newbery Medal for The White Stag . Kate Seredy died March 7, 1975, in Middletown, New York.
