Isaac Bashevis Singer (1903-1991) won the 1978 Nobel Prize for Literature for his achievements as a writer. Singer was born in Poland and first published his work in Yiddish, but later translated it into English. He wrote children’s stories as well as fiction novels, primarily centered around his experience as a Jewish Polish-American growing up and living in wartime Europe and America. Maurice Sendak (1928-2012), creator of Where the Wild Things Are, was an American author and illustrator of countless children’s books and movies.
