While at one of the university libraries I visited, I checked out the Berta and Elmer Hader Collection Exhibition. Check out my write up of it in a day or two! It was quite inspiring.

I ‘m hoping to finish “The Crying Tree” so I can attend one of the book club discussions the library’s holding in which Naseem Rahka, the author, will be there.
Happy Reading Week everyone!
