In Response to: Children’s Author Laurie Wallmark ’76 Tells Untold Stories
Thank you for your article on author Laurie Wallmark ’76 (Princetonians, March issue). When I was growing up, from the time I could read, I read a lot! I searched out biographies of women. I read about Marie Curie; the first Queen Elizabeth; Mary, Queen of Scots; Florence Nightingale; Clara Barton; Prudence Crandall, who ran the first school for African American girls in the United States — any woman I could find. In the early 1960s, books about eminent women weren’t as common as they are today. I would have been delighted to read Wallmark’s books if they had been available. I’m so glad they are now!
