We had a couple of suggestions at Open Book to have a "Local Authors" page. So, here you go. I will be adding information and links as I get them.


Contents

Jeanne Dams

Find materials by Jeanne Dams in the catalog.

Jeanne Dams official website.


Johnnie Griffin

Find materials by Johnnie Griffin in the catalog.


Gene Ha

Find materials illustrated by Gene Ha in the catalog.

Locate Batman books and comic books in the catalog.

Gene Ha's official website.


Joe Haldeman

Mr. Haldeman is not exactly local, but he did participate in our Open Book Festival this year (2006), so we will include him here for awhile. He is a popular and well-known science fiction author.

Find materials by Joe Haldeman in the catalog.

Joe Haldeman's Tangled Web Site.


John Kovach

We can't get much more local than the Library's own John Kovach. When he's not working in the Local & Family History Department, John can usually be found on a baseball diamond. Click here for a list of items available in the catalog.

Patricia Pollacco

Children's author and illustrator from Union City, Michigan.


John Palmer

Another local author with ties to the Library is John Palmer. John also worked in Local History & Genealogy and wrote several items about local families as well as South Bend.


Franklin Sheneman

Yet another author who is also a former Library employee. Franklin, a native of North Liberty, has written a book about that area: Southern St. Joseph County.


Sarah Stewart and David Small

One of my favorite author/illustrator teams of children's materials (and the one that I haven't had the honor to meet yet, although I have several autographed copies of their books).

This biography of David Small is from the National Center for Children's Illustrators.
