Words Are Not Enough to Express the Loss

koterba-updike-RIP.jpg

Yesterday, we told you about the memorials to John Updike on Twitter; this morning, we’d like to spotlight the tribute paid by Omaha World-Herald editorial cartoonist Jeff Koterba. (We’ve met Koterba through our involvement in the Omaha Literary Festival, where he has spoken both as a cartoonist and as a soon-to-be-published memoirist.)

Please let us know if other newspapers have chosen to recognize Updike’s passing in similar fashion.
