Children’s Librarians and Children’s Authors: Elizabeth Sechrist

Storypockets looks at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s rich tradition of author-librarians. Our previous installments featured Sorche Nic Leodhas, Laura Cathon, Margaret Hodges, and Elva S. Smith. This week, we focus on Elizabeth Sechrist.

Elizabeth Sechrist (1903-1991) was assistant children’s librarian at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh in the mid-1920s. She wrote fiction and nonfiction for adults and children. She was also an editor, compiling collections of poems and folktales.

Next week, Storypockets features author-librarian Megan McDonald.
