Jean Craighead George dies at 92

There was another sad loss to the children's book world today when we learned the news that Jean Craighead George had passed away at 92 years of age.  She had an amazing career, publishing over 100 books, winning the Newbery award for Julie of the Wolves and the Newbery honor for My Side of the Mountain, and inspiring generations of children.  She will be dearly missed.  School Library Journal has posted an obituary worth reading here.  If you would like to remind yourself what made her so special, or to discover her work for the first time, check our catalog here.
