RIP Coleen Salley

Via Read Roger and Fuse #8 I learned that Coleen Salley (author of my beloved Epossumondas) has died.

This makes for a very sad Abby.

If you haven't already, do yourself a favor and track down Salley's audio recording of Epossumondas Saves the Day.

Incidentally, I just read Epossumondas to a group of K-4th graders at an after school program last week. They loved it.

Abby,

Coleen told me in 1995 that she wasn't afraid of dying because she KNEW her deceased husband was up there waiting for her.

I just know she's still telling stories to whoever will listen.
