E.L. Konigsburg

Award-winning children's author E.L. Konigsburg passed away last Friday, April 19th, at the age of 83.  She is one of my favorite children's author and wrote many excellent books for kids.  My favorite is her classic 1967 Newbery Award winner, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.  Like many kids I dreamed of running away to New York City and living at the MET.  What an incredible adventure! 

Read about her at Publisher's Weekly and visit the library for one of her amazing books today.
