American Letters Loses Three Leading Lights


Last week, three well-known U.S. writers died: novelist J.D. Salinger (at 91);  historian and social activist Howard Zinn (at 87), and writer, editor, and lawyer Louis Auchincloss (at 92).

Clicking on the links above to these authors’ names will take you to entries about them in Wikipedia. The entires describe their contribution to American letters, provide lists of their works, and include links to further online information about them, including published obituaries.

You can borrow books written by these authors from your local public library.
