In Memoriam: 2020 Author Deaths 

Created by Linda Tripp, collection development librarian

“No one is finally dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away, until the clock wound up winds down, until the wine she made has finished its ferment, until the crop they planted is harvested. The span of someone’s life is only the core of their actual existence.” ― Terry Pratchett (1948 – 2015), Reaper Man” 

Looking back at 2020, we remember the many authors who passed away. Here are some who will live on, long past death, through their writing.
