- E. L. Konigsburg, author of beloved children’s titles The View from Saturday, A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver, and, most famously, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, has died, at eighty-three.
- Speaking of people in museums past closing hours, Whitey Bulger is the subject of another book. (Considering he is “known to be a book reader,” maybe he won’t mind too much.)
- In other Boston news, The New Yorker talks literature, violence, and the Caucasus in light of last week’s tragic events.
- And in case you missed this informative memo to tweeters: Chechens are not from the Czech Republic.
- The 2012 LA Times Book Prize winners have been announced.
