The drawback of being on Facebook and Twitter is that I sometimes think I've written about something, only to discover that no, it was part of a FB/Twitter conversation
In January, after the ALA Midwinter Conference, ALSC members Kate McClelland and Kathy Krasniewicz were killed in a car accident on their way to the Denver Airport. The New York Times wrote a beautiful article about the two women; the ALSC blog collected memories of the two women, and posted other updates.
Kate McClelland was the vice-president/president-elect of ALSC. Following ALSC rules, Thom Barthelmess was appointed to be vice-president/president-elect.
If you've clicked through any of these links, right now you're realizing what a loss this is to these women's families, friends, library, and the profession.
Perrot Memorial Library in Old Greenwich, Connecticut is holding a Memorial Service on March 20. Full details are at the library blog.
