Biographical / Historical
Madeleine Bettina Stern was born July 1, 1912, in New York, NY. She became a high school English teacher, an author, and a partner in a rare book store. Most of her writing is for adults; she specializes in nineteenth-century Americana. She is especially drawn to feminist biographies and publishing history, and enjoys literary and biographical detective work. Only two of her books were directed specifically at juvenile audiences, and both of those were based upon adult books she had written. She died in 2007.
