Last month California State Assembly Minority Leader Patrick Nolan, of the 41 st District, presented a resolution on the floor of the Assembly honoring Nance for his community service and outreach to school children. Appearing with Nancc in Ava- lon will be Barbara Saltztnan, rep- resenting the late David Saltzman, author of the best-selling chil- dren's book, 777e Jester llas Lost Ills Jingle. The book, now in its fifth.printing, is considered a new children's classic by schools, libraries and bookstores. Accompanying it is the Jester and Pharley doll, which has received an honor award by the National Association of Parenting Publications. The author/iUustrator worked on this book as his senior English and art project at Yale University while being treated for Hodgkins Disease, which took his life a short time after graduation and shortly before his twenty-third birthday. The book's primary message is that laughter is inside each of us, a poignant message from one whose own life was so shortened. More than 25,000 copies of The Jester Has Lost tlis Jingle have been donated to children with cancer and other special needs. Two Other autPiors.
