Two sad pieces of news today

Standard

It was announced yesterday that Nobel Prize-winner Doris Lessing has died at 94.

I’m very sad to have learned that Barbara Park, author of manymanymany books, including the Junie B. Jones series, has died of ovarian cancer.

I wish I could say I’ve read more of both of them, but nonetheless, I’m thankful for their contributions to adult and children’s literature, respectively.
