A Tribute to Sheila Egoff

Sheila Egoff, greatest of Canadian childrens' librarians, has passed away. You can read her obituary here. I also found a biography online.

But the most interesting thing I've found today is this interview, which expresses many of her feelings about particular issues in childrens' books (is violence in fairy tales really an issue?).

That's a wonderful interview. It sounds as if she was a tremendously sensible woman.
