- Author BiographyAuthor and poet Carl Sandburg was born in 1878. He worked many jobs before becoming a writer: delivering milk, laying bricks, threshing wheat, and shining shoes. After marrying in 1908, he moved to Illinois and took up journalism as a reporter for the Chicago Daily News. Rootabaga Stories (1922) was his first book for children. During his career Sandburg won two Pulitzer Prizes: in 1940 for Abraham Lincoln: The War Years and in 1951 for his Complete Poems. Sandburg died at his home in North Carolina in 1967. Lynn Smith-Ary has worked as an artist and animation filmmaker for over thirty years. Her films have won many awards, including a Genie for Pearl's Diner and first prizes in Columbus, Ohio, and Bombay for Sandburg's Arithmetic. This film, based on the poem Arithmetic by Carl Sandburg, reflects Lynn's long-standing admiration for this great poet's writing. Lynn resides in Montreal.
