sad news

I received a call last night that Dr. Ted Hipple had died. This loss is a HUGE one to those of us who work in the field of YA literature. Ted was a leader for many of us. Former Exec Secretary of ALAN, author, editor, professor, friend, and colleague. These words do little to tell about the man. Ted will be missed.

Also, a correction on the title of the book from the NBA finalist list: THE LEGEND OF BUDDY BUSH by Sheila Moses. Guess I am getting old and forgetful.
