Elfrida (Elfrida Vipoint Foulds 1902 to 1992) [soft back] Author: Susan V. Hartshorne

Biography about Elfrida Vipoint Foulds. Elfrida Vipoint wrote over over 40 books. Some are serious books about Quakerism; some are written for teenagers – adventure stories or biographies of famous authors; and some are suitable for much younger readers. She was awarded a Carnegie Medal for The Lark of the Wing, and her book for reading to the very young, The Elephant and the Bad Baby, has become a classic. However, not many of her readers know that Elfrida trained first as a professional singer and that she spent the war years as a headmistress of a school for evacuees. Only after that did she turn to writing as a full time career. Elfrida was also an inspiring lecturer, speaking both about her books and also on Quaker subjects. Many remember her inspirational addresses. This is the story of her life.
