My Tribute to E. L. Konigsburg
I am sorry to report that one of my favorite authors is gone. E. L. Konigsburg who wrote From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler has passed away.
I loved her books growing up, and I currently own a class set of "Mixed-up Files" to share with my students. If you aren't familiar with the story, a brother and sister run away to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan. They investigate a mystery of a small statue that may have been created by Michelangelo.
This book captured my imagination because I loved mysteries and I loved being independent. (Those who know me in real life can attest to this.)
