From Harriet’s Family:


The words of Harriet May Savitz will live on forever as will her spirit.


Her typewriter has been silenced as she passed away on July 20th, after fighting a strong battle with a terminal illness.


As her words are read and pages turned in her books, so shall she remain with us in our souls, touching and changing lives on a daily basis.


Her power and strength will continue as she explores the spiritual world in which she so strongly believed.

Messages From Somewhere

Publishers Weekly  Review  2002


“Savitz, the author of young adult books and a contributor to the Chicken Soup series, reflects on the late-life independence she’s discovered as a senior in these uplifting, interwoven essays.  She explores her continuing maternal role, the friendships she’s found in later years, widowhood and the transition from suburban living to closer quarters after the family dispersed.  Savitz amusingly describes “senior moments” of absentmindedness (which strike her children and grandchildren, too) and offers touching personal anecdotes about needing and still being needed by her middle-aged children.”
