Hillary Clinton, Jerry Spinelli, and Ondawa

imageToday I spent a wonderful hour listening to Hillary Clinton addressing the American Library Association. Of course she was speaking to an audience that shares her values of education, accuracy, reading, and inclusion. Nevertheless, it was inspiring to listen to her. I must admit that I felt misty eyed and sad that we lost the opportunity to have such a special, intelligent, thoughtful woman as our president.

One of my latest reading titles is Jerry Spinelli’s The Warden’s Daughter.  He always tells a compelling  story with believable characters. I particularly liked that the main character’s central issue was not immediately obvious. This would make a great book discussion title for middle grade readers.

Finally, I continue to plug away on the Ondawa sweater. I’m trying to do nothing sleeves at the same time. I know I’ll be glad when they are both done, but it does have the potential for great confusion.
