It is with great sadness that we share this news.

Dear friends,

It is with great sadness that the founders of Reading Kingdom, Dr. Marion Blank and her son, Jonathan Blank, wish to share the news that Dr. Martin Blank, Marion’s husband and Jonathan’s father, passed away this past Wednesday June 13th.

Reading Kingdom is a work of love for us and while Martin wasn’t directly involved, he was our biggest fan and an avid supporter.

You can read his obituary here:

We will miss him.

Thank you for letting us share our sorrow with you.

Best wishes,

Dr. Marion Blank & Jonathan Blank
