About the Author:

Susan Zannos has been a lifelong educator, having taught at all levels, from preschool to college, in Mexico, Greece, Italy, Russia, and Lithuania, as well as in the United States. She has published a mystery Trust the Liar (Walker and Co.) and Human Types: Essence and the Enneagram (Samuel Weiser). Her book, Human Types, was recently translated into Russian, and in 2003 Susan was invited to tour Russia and lecture about her book. Another book she wrote for young adults, Careers in Education (Mitchell Lane) was selected for the New York Public Library’s "Books for the Teen Age 2003 List." She has written many books for children, including Chester Carlson and the Development of Xerography and The Life and Times of Ludwig van Beethoven (Mitchell Lane). When not traveling, Susan lives in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California.

From Booklist:

Reviewed with John Bankston's Michael L. Printz and the Story of the Michael L. Printz Award.

Gr. 4-8. It's a pleasure to have a biography of a librarian, especially because so many in the field either knew Mike Printz or knew of him. Printz's dedicated and book-filled life, his enormous influence on students, writers, and other librarians, is chronicled a bit breathlessly, with the genesis and development of the award for young adult literature named for Printz neatly tied in. Pulitzer was a different sort of person, a disagreeable and bedeviled newspaperman who terrorized reporters in two cities (St. Louis and New York) but whose fortune led to the establishment of the Pulitzer Prizes in journalism. Both these volumes bear the awkward writing style of authors hammering out prose from whatever sources they can muster, and pictures tend toward what's available. Bibliographies and glossaries are very short. Each volume in the Great Achievement Awards series contains a chronology of the subject's life, and both books also list the recipients of the prizes named for their subjects. GraceAnne DeCandido
