Late Carthage Author Discussed
March 11, 2009 - The fourth grade class at Carthage Elementary School listened to a presentation about an author who lived and graduated from high school in Carthage in 1906.
During the fourth grade’s library class, Theresa and Kristina Latz gave an informative presentation on the life and works of Marjorie Hill Allee (1890-1945). They had made a poster of the author and gave out handouts about the author and her books. The school will be displaying the poster and handouts until spring break. Then the items are going to the Henry Henley Public Library in Carthage. The display will be near the author’s books that are available in the library.
Theresa and Kristina Latz have researched the author for two years. They read all of the books they could find and some of her short stories. Allee wrote 14 books.
The Latzes have discovered a lot from the Internet and old newspapers located at the Henry Henley Public Library. They are still looking for more information about Allee, but may have to travel to Chicago to get information. As Theresa and Kristina put it, “Marjorie Hill Allee was a daughter of Carthage but an author to a nation”. They said their favorite books so far are Susanna and Tristram and Runaway Linda.
