Janet Lund, a children's bookseller at the King's English Bookshop and a teacher, Salt Lake City, Utah, died on June 9 after a long illness. She was 66.
The King's English said that "legions of kids learned to read and love books because of her enthusiasm. Many of those children are now grown and bringing their own little ones into the bookshop to share the joy of the written word. Known for her passion for and knowledge of children's literature and her unerring ability, on daily display at the King's English for many years, to find just the right book for each child, she will be missed by the book community not only in Salt Lake City but nationally as well. Her legacy in the world of children's books will live on."
