Bestselling and Newbery Medal-winning author Patricia MacLachlan has died at the age of eighty-four.
MacLachlan was best known for Sarah, Plain and Tall, which the New York Times reports was based on an event in her family's history.
She wrote several follow-ups to that Newbery winner as well as dozens of other picture and chapter books, with three more yet to come, according to her publisher.
