GARY
PAULS EN

BORN: May 17, 1939, Minneapolis, Minnesota

IDENTIFICATION: Popular and prolific writer of young-adult literature who has also written adult fiction and nonfiction.

SIGNIFICANCE: As the new century grows older, Gary Paulsen continues to produce books at a remarkable pace. This popular storyteller is the author of more than 200 literary works: novels, nonfiction articles, historical fiction, and autobiographical works, many of them for adult readers. His reputation as a young-adult novelist is founded on his skill in addressing coming-of-age themes. His work, in much of which outdoor settings feature prominently, blends a respect for human endurance, the natural world, and literacy Critical acclaim came first when Dogsong was named a Newbery Honor Book in 1986; the same honor later went to Hatchet and The Winter Room. Paulsens books frequently appear on recommended reading lists, including those of the American Library Association.
