From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler - E.L. Konigsburg
She died yesterday 4/20/13
NPR called Jamie Peter when they spoke about her and this book today (4/21) You'd think someone there would do the proper research because it's been at least 20+ years since I've read this and I knew they had it wrong, even out of the corner of my hearing.
