Author Natalie Babbitt Dies at 84

Natalie Babbitt, the author of the classic novel "Tuck Everlasting," passed away on Monday at the age of 84 in her home in Connecticut. Her husband said the cause of death was lung cancer. Babbitt won the inaugural E. B. White Award for achievement in children’s literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2013 and a Newberry Honor in 1971. “I think that living forever would be a terrible thing,” she once said. “It would be boring, sad and lonely.”
