And he sailed off through night and day

Maurice Sendak, beloved author of notable children's favorites, including Where the Wild Things Are, In The Night Kitchen, and The Nutshell Library, passed away today at the age of 83. In remembrance of his works, the library has set up a display of his collection downstairs, just outside the Curriculum Room.

Read more in the NY Times article here, or listen to one of his many interviews on NPR's Fresh Air.

Rest in peace, Mr. Sendak. You will be missed.
