Biographical / Historical

Gunnel Linde was born October 14, 1924, in Stockholm, Sweden. As a child she wrote books for her teddy bears, her cousins, and for herself. She attended Anders Beckmans Reklamskola in Stockholm from 1943-1944, and Stockholms Kontskola in 1953. She began her career as a journalist in 1945. She was a producer of radio programs for children from 1957-63, and television programs for children beginning in 1964. Her writings began to be published starting in 1958. The White Stone was awarded a Nils Holgersson Award in 1965 and was also chosen by the American Library Association as one of the notable children's books of 1966. In addition to the English translations, some of Linde's works have been published in Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, German, Japanese, Dutch, and Polish.
