Carole G. Vogel

Carole Garbuny Vogel has written over 26 high-interest nonfiction books for young readers. She is a recipient of the SCBWI’s Anna Cross Giblin nonfiction work-in-progress grant and the Joan Fassler Memorial Book Award for excellence in medical writing for children. Among her dozens of books are Nature’s Fury: Eyewitness Reports of Natural Disasters (winner of the Boston Authors Club Book of the Year Award), and Legends of Landforms: Native American Lore and the Geology of the Land (a NCSS/CBC Notable Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies). Carole’s last name, Vogel, means “bird” in German and she finds this quite fitting as she has been fascinated by birds all her life.  A former teacher, her writing reflects her strong interest in new discoveries, the power of nature, and concern for the future of the environment. She graduated from Kenyon College with a B.A. in biology and received an M.A.T. in elementary education from the University of Pittsburgh.  Carole lives in Lexington, Massachusetts.
