Remembering Kate McClelland

I was very sorry to hear of the death of Kate McClelland and her Perrot Memorial Library (Old Greenwich, CT) colleague Kathy Krasniewicz at Midwinter in a car accident. I did not know Kathy but found Kate a stimulating--okay, irascible--presence, filled with ideas and strongly worded suggestions. If you look back through your Horn Books you'll find several such suggestions from Kate among the Letters to the Editor!

And, in her memory and for your pleasure, here is the seminal article she wrote with Eliza Dresang about David Macaulay's eternally confounding Black and White.

A great lady, indeed, and a kind one to this author at the start of his careet. She will be remembered warmly.
