Jean Craighead George, 1919-2012

I am very sad to report that one of my very favorite childhood authors, Jean Craighead George, has just passed away at the age of 93.  She was a wonderfully prolific author who focused a lot on nature, writing the now-famous works My Side of the Mountain, Julie of the Wolves, and many others.

To read about her life and work, check out her official webpage or the New York Times tribute piece about her.
