I am back to teaching and reading and excited a granddaughter will be here in a month if she arrives on time. Maybe she will want to see the world and come early? I thought that with my first being born on Christmas Eve. He was due in January and came early. He didn't want to miss Christmas! Maybe she will come Valentine's Day?! We shall see. Here are a few books I am reading:
for Book Club
Going to be teaching Frankenstein in Feb. so reading this wonderful biography by a favorite author, an author we collect:
I recently finished Walter Wangerin's new book on writing:
Teaching Langston Hughes to middle school age kids and it is my first time reading his work.

Bring me all your
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too-rough fingers
Of the world.
