Remembering A Beloved Friend of LitWorld

At LitWorld we are privileged to be surrounded by extraordinary girls and boys, women and men. These individuals inspire us and it is an honor to work hand-in-hand to create a future where every child has a safe space to learn. One of these passionate and compassionate kindred spirits that we had the absolute honor to know and to love was Elinor Ratner and last week we were saddened to learn of her passing. 

Elinor was a member of LitWorld's Advisory Council and a founding member of our Gala Committee. We join with our extended LitWorld family to celebrate Elinor and all she accomplished in her 94 years. We will forever remember this inspiring, generous and fiery woman through her daily embodiment of LitWorld's guiding principles, our 7 Strengths.
