John Fleischman writes science for the American Society for Cell Biology, books for Children and other people, and posts for the "Harvard Health Letter" and "Air & Space Smithsonian." He was a science writer at Harvard Medical School, also a science broadcaster in Boston's WGBH (public radio), and also a senior editor for "Yankee" and "Ohio" publications.
Fleischman's latest bestselling book for older kids is "Black & White Airmen: Their True History," published in 2007 by Houghton-Mifflin Children's Books of Boston. Named a 2008 "Orbis Pictus Honor Book for Outstanding Nonfiction for Children" from the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), "Airmen" also acquired the 2008 Carter G. Woodson Middle Level Book Award by the National Council for the Social Studies. Says Fleischman, '' "'Black & White Airmen' is about flying, WWII, segregation, and friendship. And it has a happy ending."
His first playoff book for older kids, "Phineas Gage: A Gruesome But True Story About Brain Science," was an American Library Association "Notable Children's Book" and "Best Book for Young Adults" at 2003. It was also called an "Orbis Pictus Honor Book" from the NCTE in 2003. The paperback was chosen for a listing of "2007 Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults" in the ALA winter assembly. Fleischman had been awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2006 to focus on his next nonfiction novel for older children about animals that have won the Nobel Prize in Medicine. (You thought only individuals won them?)
