"You only have one life. Make the most of it". -Louis Sachar
Louis Sachar was born on March 20, 1954, and is most well known for his novel, "Holes", as well as the "Wayside School" series. "Holes" won both the 1999 Newbery Medal and the 1988 U. S. National Book Award for Young People's Literature. It was also adapted into a successful motion picture, with Sachar writing the screenplay. Sachar's writing clearly translates well into other media, because the "Sideways Stories from Wayside School" was adapated into a television series.
