Author and illustrator create Sandy Hook tribute

The author of the children’s classic “Sarah, Plain and Tall” is teaming up with an acclaimed illustrator for a tribute to the victims of the Sandy Hook school shootings.

Random House Children’s Books announced Monday that it will publish the picture story “Snowflakes Fall,” by Newbery Medal winner Patricia MacLachlan and her longtime friend and former Sandy Hook resident, Steven Kellogg. The book comes out Nov. 12 and will feature words and images about the Connecticut community where a gunman killed 20 elementary school students and six faculty members. The publisher will donate a portion of proceeds to an organization that helps the Sandy Hook community.

MacLachlan won the Newbery, given to the writer of the year’s best children’s book, in 1986 for “Sarah, Plain and Tall.”
