As promised, to finish up my week of Russell Freedman, I’m supplying a bibliography with a list of his books and the awards they have won. I compiled this list using

  • the Alliance for the Study and Teaching of Adolexcent Literature at Rhode Island College website, which provided a wonderful starting point for this list
  • Also Amazon.com’s list of books authored by Freedman helped fill in the most recent titles
  • Finally, Librarything.com might have a new fan with it’s compilation of titles and awards.

Any missing or incorrect data is problably my own fault, so please let me know and I can edit as necessary.

In addition to the awards his books have received, he has also been honored with the American Library Association’s Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal (1998), given to authors who have been adjudged to have made over a period of years a consistent and lasting contribution to literature for young readers. In 2007, Russell Freedman received one of the National Humanities Medals for that year.
