Madeleine L'Engle died last night. She was, for me an inspiration. I've shared her wonderful books with so many people. I'm deeply saddened and feel her loss keenly. Like Kelly at Big A, little a, A Wrinkle in Time meant the world to me when I was growing up. The book went on to be one of my children's favorites as well and now I am reading it to my grandchildren.
AmoXcalli is in mourning. The kidlit blogosphere is in mourning.
There may be more later as I find out more. This is a tremendous loss for literature and the world.
