I just saw a post about Barbara Park’s passing and I had to make a post in remembrance of this wonderful women. She was the reason I fell in love with reading around a decade ago. Thank you Barbara for inspiring me and countless other children to read, you and your works will be sorely missed.
Barbara died after a long fight with ovarian cancer. If you would like to donate to the charity she helped create to support others who are affected by this terrible disease you can here: http://www.sistersinsurvival.org/
