Book o' the Month: In the Great Green Room

Chances are you have heard of the children's book Goodnight Moon.  In the Great Green Room, by Amy Gary, is about it's author, Margaret Wise Brown.  She did lead a brilliant and bold life, as the cover states.  It was also brief.  She died at the age of forty-two of an embolism following bed rest after undergoing an appendectomy in France.  Ms. Brown had extraordinary vision, but also the same insecurities we all deal with.  I cried at the end of this easy-to-read book for a life that ended way too soon.
