Remembering Leonard Nimoy and Terry Pratchet
By Rebecca Tischler, Reference Department
Leonard Nimoy and Terry Pratchett have both become beloved by the American Public, and their loss was painful to everyone who looked up to them. I can’t say any more than has already been said about these individuals, and I can’t memorialize them any better than has already been done, so I’m going to do what librarians do best. I’m going to provide you with information and links about them that may make you smile and remember.
Sir Terence David John “Terry” Pratchett, OBE (Order of the British Empire) is an English author of fantasy novels, especially comical works. He is best known for his Discworld series of about 40 volumes.
