Thanks to a fellow blogger at READING IS MY SUPERPOWER for this colorful meme.

Today’s First Liner is from

This book was highly recommended by blogging friends.

Here is the first line:

“ONE

May 1989

Whenever I hear a train’s horn in the distance, that bruised sound, I think of Quincy. He spent half his life days down at the depot, true enough, but it’s the nature of the sound that reminds me of him, how it’s at once familiar and remote.”

Uh huh, “that bruised sound”…my kind of writing! I can’t wait to get started.

KEEP ON READING!

This year (2019) finds me with 50 plus years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
