FROM THE BULLETIN OF THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS
Apology to an Author and to My Grandmother
In my review of Meghan McCarthy’s The Incredible Life of Balto in the July/August issue, I not just once but twice used an incorrect last name for the author. I sincerely apologize to Meghan McCarthy, whose book I liked quite a bit; I also apologize to my grandmother, Lucy McCarthy, who is glowering at me from the afterlife for messing up my own family’s name. My deepest regrets to Meghan McCarthy; please stop turning over now, Grandma.
