Sample Autograph Signature: Elizabeth Coatsworth

American poet, novelist and author of books for children and juveniles. Elizabeth Jane Coatsworth (1893-1986) was prolific writer who produced over ninety books of fiction and poetry for children, adult novels, books of poetry, non-fiction works about Maine, and edited a volume by her husband, Henry Beston. She is best known for her children's books which included picture books, books for "middle-aged" children, and a few books for older teenagers. The Cat Who Went to Heaven, for which she won the 1931 Newbery Medal, is still in-print. Her earliest book of adult poetry, Compass Rose, was written in 1929, but she continued to write and publish poetry throughout her life both in collections and placed between the chapters of her books of fiction. Her first novel, Here I Stay: A Maine Novel, was written in 1938. Her non-fiction included several autobiographical books such as Maine Ways, a chronicle of social customs in her later home state of Maine, and Personal Geography Almost an Autobiography written in her eighties. Coatsworth won numerous awards, including the Hans Christian Andersen Award Highly Commended Author in 1968. Her daughter, Kate Barnes, was Maine's first poet laureate.
