Some Writer is more than just a biography of the author E.B. White. It is also a fitting tribute comprised of photos, personal letters, early essays and poetry, original artwork from author-illustrator Melissa Sweet, and even a brochure White designed as a young boy. E.B. White became a writer at an early age, entering and winning contests throughout his childhood. He began his career as a journalist and New Yorker contributor, and later took on the challenge of writing for children. Dividing his time between New York City and the country, White was hugely inspired by the animals on his farm in Maine and used them in his writing. As a children’s author, he became best known for his books Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little, which today are considered classics. (Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award, 2018)
