Read full description of the books Gone-Away Lake:Two Newbery Honor -- winning series from the '50s and '60s get new life in Harcourt Young Classic/Odyssey dual editions. Mary GrandPre contributes new cover art for Elizabeth Enright's Gone-Away Lake (1957) and Return to Gone-Away (1961), with the original b&w interior illustrations by Beth and Joe Krush. The novels revolve around cousins who explore an apparently abandoned summer colony and discover two elderly people who have secretly returned to the homes of their youth. The storytelling reflects Enright's characteristic humor and her ability to imagine adventures that readers would long for in real life.
Read information about the authorElizabeth Enright (1907-1968) was born in Oak Park, Illinois, but spent most of her life in or near New York City. Her mother was a magazine illustrator, while her father was a political cartoonist. Illustration was Enright's original career choice and she studied art in Greenwich, Connecticut; Paris, France; and New York City. After creating her first book in 1935, she developed a taste, and quickly demonstrated a talent, for writing. Throughout her life, she won many awards, including the 1939 John Newbery Medal for Thimble Summer and a 1958 Newbery Honor for Gone-Away Lake. Among her other beloved children's titles are her books about the Melendy family, including The Saturdays, published in 1941. Enright also wrote short stories for adults, and her work was published in The New Yorker, The Ladies Home Journal, Cosmopolitan, The Yale Review, Harper's, and The Saturday Evening Post. She taught creative writing at Barnard College. Translated into many languages throughout the world, Elizabeth Enright's stories are for both the young and the young at heart.
