Writer William G. Tapply passed away on July 28th at his home in Hancock, NH. He was one of the most influential and memorable professors that I had during my four years of college. I credit him with teaching me more about writing in one semester than the rest of the world taught me in my previous 21 years of life. I will miss his humor, insight, and advice.
Please take a minute to visit his website and check out some of his writing.
Also, The Boston Globe wrote an excellent obituary about him which you can read by clicking here.
