Lamstein Lecture with Gary Schmidt
Gary Schmidt is the author of middle grade novels such as Lizzie Bright and the Buckminister Boy, which won Nerwbery and Printz Honors; The Wednesday Wars, which won a Newbery Honor; and Okay for Now, a National Book Award Finalist and Children's Choice Award winner. He lives in Alto, Michigan, on the old Buck farm, in a house built in the early 1830s; it provides, he thinks, inspiration. He teaches writing, medieval literature, and children's literature at Calvin College, and is on the graduate faculty of Hamline University's MFA program in Writing for Children.
