The government Web site USA.gov has an excellent information portal for Memorial Day, including personal stories from the Veterans History Project and ways to support our troops.
Have a safe, fun, and meaningful Memorial Day weekend, everyone!
Beloved children's book author Maurice Sendak has passed away at age 83. Here is a tribute to his life and work, in the New York Times.
A small measure of Sendak's prominence in the literary landscape can be seen by doing a quick search on his name in UMUC Library OneSearch: numerous interviews, biographies, book reviews, and critical interpretations of his work have been published and are available through the library.
Maurice Sendak will be missed by children of all ages! Luckily, we will always have his books.
