Legendary, Pultizer Prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert passed away today after a long battle with cancer. Ebert remained active writing on his website, Twitter and in the pages of the Chicago Sun Times right up until his death. TPM came across something we thought Ebert’s fans might appreciate seeing as they react to the news of his passing. Apparently, Ebert’s love of letters started at a very young age and his profile photo on Facebook was a vintage photo showing him as a toddler curled up with a good book. Take a look at the picture below.
