As most of you librarian/publishing folks know, Kate McClelland and Kathy Krasniewicz - beloved librarians and friends - died on Wednesday in a hit-and-run accident while on their way to the Denver airport. I am brokenhearted and mourn deeply for their families.
To read lovely comments and tributes to them, see the ALSC blog.
As far as sharing stories, I am at a loss for words. So I'll direct you to this post where I shared the story of when "Kathy Kras" met Ina Garten in the halls of Random House.
Eat, drink, and raise a glass to two extraordinary, sassy, and eternally beautiful women.
