Walter Dean Myers

He was a tireless advocate for reading and for books that reflect the lives and backgrounds of contemporary children and teens. In 2012 he was named the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature by the Library of Congress. He was awarded the Coretta Scott King Award six times, was a three-time finalist for the National Book Award (young adult literature) and twice received a Newbery Honor.

Frances Foster
In Memoriam

It is with sadness that we note the passing of Frances Foster, inspirational editor and staunch and enthusiastic supporter of CLNE. In 2002, at the summer institute AM I MY BROTHER'S KEEPER?, held at Radcliffe College in Cambridge, MA, she delivered the Heins Memorial Lecture. As a frequent participant in our institutes, she was welcoming and open to all who approached her, listening with that slight tilt of her head and her gracious smile. She offered wise words of support and was prompt to promote new ideas. Many of her authors and illustrators came to CLNE through her generous support. She will be remembered with affection for all that she gave to the CLNE family.
