DIED

Amy Krouse Rosenthal, prolific children’s-book author and short-film maker, at 51. In early March, Rosenthal penned an emotional New York Times Modern Love column about life after her imminent death, titled “You May Want to Marry My Husband.”

• Howard Hodgkin, Turner Prize–winning British artist known for his abstract paintings and prints, at 84. Hodgkin, whose creations were often inspired by the colors and warmth of India, worked up until his death, with two exhibitions of his work due to open this year.

• Carol Field, food writer, at 76. Her 1985 cookbook, The Italian Baker, introduced America to breads like ciabatta and focaccia.

OFFERED

A conditional place to study at a U.K. university, to Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai. The 19-year-old human-rights activist, who was speaking at a conference in Birmingham, England, did not reveal which university had offered her a place, but an Oxford University student newspaper said she had won a spot to study philosophy, politics and economics at Lady Margaret Hall, the first Oxford college for women.

INSTALLED

A memorial sculpture in the Belgian capital of Brussels, to remember those who lost their lives in recent terrorist attacks in Europe and Africa. The metal sculpture, titled Wounded But Still Standing in Front of the Inconceivable, was designed by Belgian artist Jean-Henri Compère.
