Johanna Spyri Biography

Johanna Spyri was a Swiss author, born on June 12, 1827 in Hirzel, Switzerland. She is best known for her novel "Heidi," which was published in 1880 and became an instant success, especially among children. 

Spyri was born into a family of farmers, and she grew up in the Swiss countryside, which inspired much of her writing. After her husband's death, she became a teacher and then a governess, and her experiences with children and her love for nature and the mountains of Switzerland inspired her to write stories for children.

Spyri died on July 7, 1901, but her legacy lived on, as her books continued to be popular among children and adults alike. She remains one of the most beloved children's authors of all time, and her books have been adapted into films, stage plays, and TV series.
