Nora Ephron died today at 71. According to news reports, the cause was pneumonia, complications resulting from acute myeloid leukemia. She was an author, one of four sisters and part of a prominent family, once married to Carl Bernstein. But, most of us know her as the writer and director of so many beloved movies. And, did she know women!
The list of Nora Ephron’s movies go on and on: Silkwood, When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, Michael, You’ve Got Mail, Julie & Julia. There were others, but those are the ones that stand out for me. My late husband loved Michael. My favorite? I’m a librarian and book lover. I love You’ve Got Mail. That charming bookstore and the whole romance touches my heart.
We’ve lost an icon, one who knew women. Will you remember one of Nora Ephron’s movies? Which one?
