When Park School librarian Laura Amy Schlitz arrived at work yesterday, she was presented with a tiara borrowed from the theater's props department - a fitting tribute for the newly anointed queen of children's literature. Schlitz, 52, of Baltimore, learned that she had won the 2008 Newbery Medal, given annually for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for the under-18 set. During an all-school assembly called yesterday afternoon in Schlitz's honor, the entire student body of nearly 900 students stood and cheered for at least 30 seconds.

Laura Amy Schlitz readily admits that, as a child, "I loved to pretend I was somebody else and I loved to perform." Her sense of drama eventually led her to create Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village, a series of monologues that were honored last week with the 2008 Newbery Medal as the year's best children's book. Beyond Ms. Schlitz' personal triumph, it's worth noting that this work by the longtime librarian and chief storyteller at the Park School in Baltimore is also part of the private school's fifth-grade curriculum.

There was a message left on the office phone one cold night in 2001, but the caller didn't leave his name. It was just an old raspy voice wanting to say hi. I recognized the voice because I had heard him talk several hundred times, so I called him back to give him my regards. It was Art Donovan. Before I finished my introduction, he cut me off and started another conversation. "I know who you are, kid," said the Baltimore Colts' former Pro Bowl defensive tackle. "I read your stuff.

Park School librarian Laura Amy Schlitz on Monday joined a select group of authors to be twice honored with one of the nation's top prizes for children's literature. Her 2012 Victorian gothic, "Splendors and Glooms," was named one of three Newbery Honor Books by the American Library Association during a morning news conference in Seattle. An honor book essentially is a runner-up; the winner of the 2013 award was Katherine Applegate's "The One and Only Ivan," about an easygoing gorilla who rescues a baby elephant from a rundown mall and a life of neglect.

The witch had been weeping in the boxwoods for more than half a century before Laura Amy Schlitz picked up her pen and set her free. The 57-year-old Schlitz is the librarian at Park School and a Newbery Medal-winning author whose newest novel, "Splendors and Glooms," will be published Tuesday by Candlewick Press. But in 1959, she was a small child in the throes of a nightmare. "This book is a deeply personal story, and it goes back a very long way," she says. "When I was 4 years old, I woke up in the middle of the night and told my parents there was a witch crying outside in the boxwood bushes.

In the chronicles of Baltimore can be found a wise woman who has studied all the best masters in history and archaeology and the arts, and whose cleverness at telling stories is unparalleled throughout the realm. Her name is Laura Amy Schlitz and not, as some have suspected, Scheherazade. For Scheherazade merely told the king of Persia about Aladdin, Ali Baba and Sinbad the Sailor over 1,001 Arabian nights. But Laura Amy Schlitz has told stories to pupils at the Park School in Brooklandville for more than 2,002 Maryland days.
