Farewell Nina Bawden

Children's author Nina Bawden died this morning at the age of 87 - just a few of the 40+ books that she wrote are shown below. Perhaps the most famous is Carrie's War which tells the story of evacuees in Wales in World War 2, based on her own childhood experiences, and was made into a great tea-time TV serial which I remember watching in my youth. RIP Nina, happy memories.
