Short biography
Agnes Danforth was born in Tripoli, Lebanon, to medical missionary parents. Her father died of a fever and pneumonia shortly after she was born, and her mother died a few years later. She was raised by a nurse and household servants in the custody of her maternal grandmother until the age of 12. She grew up speaking Arabic and her childhood years inspired a lifelong love of foreign lands and cultures and influenced her writing. She graduated from Elmira College in New York and in 1901 married Laurence Ilsley Hewes, with whom she had several children. Agnes Danforth Hewes published the first of her many books for children and young people in 1923. She won the Newbery Honor three times for her work.
