Sad, sad day :'-(

A colleague on a listserv I read just alerted us to this announcement from SCWBI:

"Our beloved SCBWI Board Member, great friend and writer Paula Danziger passed away today from complications after a heart attack suffered a month ago. Paula had so many fans and friends among our SCBWI family, and we know you all join us in mourning her death and celebrating her life and work."

This news has made me unbelievably sad. Earlier today, we had received news that she was doing better and would be transferred to a rehabilitation center...

Luckily, we have all of her books at my library, so I have pulled together a book display and am working on a memorial booklist for my kids.

A little bit of the sparkle has left us, I fear.
