Hasn’t stopped read­ing, ei­ther. She re­cently com­pleted “Dear Pro­fes­sor Ein­stein: Al­bert Ein­stein’s Let­ters to and from Chil­dren” and is al­most fin­ished “Paris Un­der Wa­ter: How the City of Light Sur­vived the Great Flood of 1910.”

To me, I’ve al­ways been happy … al­ways felt con­tented and en­joyed my life … but I still find that as won­der­ful as I did when I was a child.”
