In Memory: Marguerite W. Davol

Compiled by Cynthia Leitich Smith
for Cynsations

Friends by Jeannine Atkins from Views from a Window Seat. Peek: "We called her Peg or Peggy, but on her book jackets she was Marguerite W. Davol. I love the language in her picture books such as Batwings and the Curtain of Night, the joy of The Paper Dragon, and Black White, Just Right, a sort of love letter to her grandchildren."

Remembering Our Peg from Jo Knowles. Peek: "I know that if you met Peg or have read any of her beautiful books, you are well aware of that sparkle you see in all of these photos. Of that joy. Of that giving soul who simply loved. Loved life, and everyone and everything in it."

Thank you for the tribute to our Peg. If anyone knows about the value of writing communities, it would be you. We love and lean on those western Mass. friends, but we also smile at all the words and pictures coming from Austin.
