Short biography
Eve Garnett attended school in Devon before studying at the Chelsea Polytechnic School of Art and the Royal Academy of Art. She produced murals for the Children’s House at Bow and held exhibitions of her work at the New English Art Club and the Tate Gallery in London. Eve Garnett is particularly remembered for her two popular children’s books, The Family from One End Street (1937), for which she received the Carnegie Medal, and Further Adventures of the Family from One End Street (1956), both of which portrayed the realities of working-class life. An avid Arctic traveller, she also produced a radio play, The Doll's House in the Arctic, and the book To Greenland’s Icy Mountains (1968).
