The New York Times reports that Nadine Gordimer died in South Africa yesterday (July 13): http://nyti.ms/1jIhVsc.
Here are links to available books by her that McCain Library owns and to criticism and interpretation of her work.
The Academy of Achievement in Washington, D.C. provides a succinct page about her, including an interview.
ASC-affiliated readers may wish to explore this article about her in the Encyclopedia of Life Writing: Autobiographical and Biographical Forms.

Need something fun to read this weekend? Visit our New Fiction Browsing Books Pinterest Board. There you will see all the latest literary masterpieces and popular novels we have recently ordered or received. No Pinterest account needed!
Just check SOPHIA, our library catalog to see if the book you want is available before you head over to pick it up! Easy, right?
This seemed like a momentous moment. The end of a literary era. Due to their age and the need to create room for new Browsing books, we are moving the Twilight series and Harry Potter series to Stack 3. Does this mean they are now considered “classics?”
Yep, that is right! McCain Library is now on Pinterest. Go to http://pinterest.com/mccainlibrary/ to check out our new books and movie boards! As soon as we order a book or movie we pin it to our boards. If you follow us you could be the first one to check out a hot new movie or book! Yay you!
Each pin will let you click through to a description on Amazon. Once you have decided it is something that interests you check SOPHIA, the library catalog to see where it is located in the library or pin it to your own boards to check out later.
Some books may still be on order. If that is the case we are sure you can sweet talk the Circulation Desk into placing it on hold for you so you are notified when it comes in. (Of course, we want give everyone a chance at the new material so let’s just limit it to one hold at a time.)
