R.I.P Robert B. Parker
Prolific crime novelist, Robert B. Parker(September 17, 1932 – January 18, 2010) died Monday, January 18th. It seems fitting that he died at his desk, working. He is best known for his Spenser series, featuring a Boston detective. The popular television show Spenser for Hire was based on this series. He has written over 60 novels, which include 3 different series. He is survived by his wife Joan and their 2 sons. Parker's books remain popular here at the library and are located upstairs in Fiction and in Paperback Fiction downstairs.
