I'm published: my blog post Melancholy and Springtime was picked up and published on the website: Teaching with Heart, Fire, and Poetry. Check it out here. The original post is here.
Books read this week:
- The Sound of Gravel by Ruth Wariner... a memoir of a girl who girl up in a polygomist community, as a sect of the Mormon church. Fascinating and horrifying.
- Teaching With Fire: Poetry that Sustains the Courage to Teach edited by Intrator and Scribner. A reread for me. I enjoyed it just as much the second time through.
- Heath Ledger: Hollywood's Dark Star by Brain Robb. It is hard to believe this talented star has been dead for nearly eight years.
- Running the Rift by Naomi Benaron...my book club selection of the month.
- The Porcupine of Truth by Bill Konigsberg...a sure am taking my sweet time with this book. Sigh.
