My plan was to tell you all about this great book: How to be a Friend to a Friend who's Sick, but then my sick friend died so I never finished the book. Instead, for these Days of the Dead, our days to remember and honor our beloved deceased; I thought I'd remind you of all the awesome authors who've passed away this year. Biographies, written while the authors were still alive, provided by the publishers.
Due to a citywide labor strike, all library locations, including the Main Library, will be closed Tuesday, Dec 5th and continuing indefinitely, until further notice.
This service announcement will be removed once libraries have reopened.
