Ursula Le Guin

by

Author Ursula Le Guin died this week at age 88. Writing for children and adults, Le Guin’s novels, short stories and poetry spanned from fantasy to science fiction. Her “Catwings” series told of a world where cats have wings and fly. Her “Earthsea” trilogy set in a magical world is considered a fantasy/sci-fi classic series. Born in California in 1939, her mother is the author of “Ishi” a nonfiction account about the last member of a lost tribe. She went to Paris on a Fulbright scholarship and graduated from Radcliffe and Columbia. An established name in literature, Le Guin’s writings are waiting to be discovered by new generations of readers.
