Search - List of Books by Nancy Willard

Nancy Willard (born June 26, 1936, in Ann Arbor, Michigan) is a children's author and poet. In 1982, she received the Newbery Medal for A Visit to William Blake's Inn. She lives in Poughkeepsie, New York and lectures at Vassar College. She was educated at the University of Michigan, where she won a Hopwood Award and received a B.A. and a Ph.D, and at Stanford University, where she received her M.A. Her first novel, Things Invisible to See (1985), is set in her home town of Ann Arbor in the 1940s; two brothers become involved with a paralyzed young woman, and it "ends with a baseball game that anticipates the film Field of Dreams in its player lineup of baseball luminaries. Susan Fromberg Schaeffer said the novel 'has the quality of a fairy tale ... a paradigm of life as a Manichean conflict between good and evil.'"
