I did not know that. I do know her books were some of my mom's favorites. I like them, too.

Oh my goodness, I didn't know that! I just love to read things written, by famous people. (Other than their public writings, I mean.) Like books of their letters and etc.

Must look for this book, in my library system.

Thank you.
