Kate and Kathy

Our hearts are heavy today with the news of the tragic accident at the close of the ALA Conference that took the lives of two talented librarians and friends of children’s literature, Kathy Krasniewicz and Kate McClelland. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families and close friends today and in the difficult days to come. The library world has lost two of our best.
