‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ Author Crashes Plane


“Richard Bach, the author of the 1970s best-selling novella ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ among other spiritually oriented books rooted in themes of flight and self-discovery, was in serious condition Saturday after his small plane crashed in Washington state.”

I liked his work quite a bit, especially ‘Jonathan.’ It had a decidedly seventies feel and appealed to the heartbroken, yet hopeful. I hadn’t thought about it much in the two decades since, until I came across this news item. Be well, Richard.
