Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week officially began yesterday, but we have all week to celebrate.

Chapter 3, Stained Glass

Chapter 3, Stained Glass

Inside the big old house we’ve been visiting this week there’s a big old stairway. Someone painted it once–or probably more than once. The light likes the paint.

(Just pop a Benadryl first if you’re allergic to fall elm. They’re pollinating like crazy right now.) Speaking of […]
