Another loss for children’s literature

I’m saddened to report another loss in the children’s literature world. Author of more than 100 novels including award-winning Julie of the Wolves and My Side of the MountainJean Craighead George, has died.  She  was 92.

Craighead George’s agent, Ginger Knowlton said that “The legacy she leaves behind for those of us at Curtis Brown who act so proudly on her behalf is that of a passionate and fearless naturalist, teacher, and artist. We are so grateful for the many years of good memories, and for all her beloved books that will live on forever.”
