Gary Paulsen – Hatchet, The River, etc.passed away October 2021

Did I miss an author that you would like to recognize this year? I have been blessed that most of the authors I read are currently producing work and alive and well (as far as I can tell). I grew up with Carle, Ehlert, Cleary & Paulsen and taught with their books!
