Goodbye, Mary Stolz

Mary Stolz, author of The Noonday Friends and many other novels for children and teens, has passed away at 86. The Noonday Friends is truly one of my most loved children's books, one I revisit from time to time.

Margalit Fox has written the NYT obituary.

The Horn Book has posted Mary Stolz's tribute to Ursula Nordstrom and two original Horn Book reviews of Stolz's works. (Thanks, Genevieve, for the tip!)
