Rave Reviewed – November

As usual, I’m sharing the WPL’s Rave Reviews picks with our blog readers. We’re trying something new with Rave reviews this year. I’ll be partnering with a different colleague every month and I think the selections will be even more varied than usual. For November I had the pleasure of Miss Mae’s company for our monthly Rave Reviews meeting. I think that this month’s selections stand out as particularly interesting since you’re...

From Reluctant to Ravenous: Get Your Child Reading this Summer

So, it’s almost summer vacation, and that can only mean one thing…reading! No, just me? I have fond memories of starting my summer vacation with a novel. For me, the end of school meant reacquainting myself with the joy of reading for pleasure. When I was an undergrad, that meant staying up all night reading Margaret Atwood’s Alias Grace, when I was 9 it meant reading as many Archie Comics and Baby-Sitters Club (the cool kids...
