Miami professor recognized by the American Library Association


Susan Morgan, Miami University Distinguished Professor of English, has been acknowledged by the American Library Association (ALA) for her 2008 biography of Anna Leonowens.

The ALA selected Morgan’s book, Bombay Anna: The Real Story and Incredible Adventures of the King and I Governess, to be placed on the 2009 Best of the Best from University Presses list.

Morgan’s biography unfolds the history of Leonowens beyond what is already known from “The King and I.” After traveling around the world, Morgan was able to discover information concerning Leonowens to create a compelling life story.

The Best of the Best from University Presses collection is announced each year at the ALA conference and recognizes publications chosen by the University Press Books committee.
