CLASSICS CLUB, a little bit early

It’s not often I get to kill two birds with one stone, but one came my way this week.

My Page Turners Book Club, which meets at the Freeman library in Houston selected a classic for a good, old-fashioned winter read.
I love Edith Wharton but somehow never read this one.

The cover even looks appropriately wintery for our December book club selection for the Page Turners. And, since December 1st is the day to draw a classic title from the jar for that purpose, instead, I will substitute this classic, killing two birds with one stone.

What a clever girl, right? LOL

Thanks to google for the underline.

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."
