Immortalized librarian


To the Editor:

Although she died a week ago, Helen Gregory, longtime librarian at Grosse Pointe Central Library, has immortalized herself in the hearts of those who read her weekly column, "The Book Return," printed in the Grosse Pointe News.

It was a good idea to read the column in private because sometimes what began as a perfunctory laugh-out-loud turned into uncontrollable, uncontainable, throw back your head laughter.

Her insightful intelligence and unique critique of the world around her provided her readers with still another road one far less traveled than most.

Her readers were fortunate to be able to avail themselves of a writer of her caliber, the quality of which one normally found in the New York Times or the New Yorker.

We loved her, we'll celebrate her, we'll miss her terribly.
