The news just broke… Walter Dean Myers has passed. In his lifetime, he wrote over 100 books, served as the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, won too many awards and honors to list, advised and inspired kids and young writers everywhere, and impacted thousands of lives. He was a lifelong proponent of diversity in children’s literature, and just a few months ago wrote an article that once again sparked the discussion.

Rest well, sir. You will be remembered always.

Beyond this, words fail me.

Not only did we lose a fine writer, but a trailblazer and advocate for more inclusivity and diversity in kidlit. A sad day indeed.

I am so broken-hearted about this. I will never forget meeting him in person and hearing him speak. I am a big fan of his works and the children’s book world has lost an incredible writer, a strong advocate for diversity, and a very fine man.
