What I’m reading . . .


Like most writers, I am continually reading and re-reading. Here’s a brief peek at what I’ve picked up from the library for December– some new books and some old, comfy books. Some fiction, some poetry, some nonfiction. Some for children, some for adults.

For sheer pleasure:

The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh: A Walk in the Forest that Inspired the Hundred Acre Wood, written by landscape designer and garden historian Kathryn Aalto; Keeping Safe the Stars by Sheila O’Connor; The Lightning Queen by Laura Resau; Silhouette of a Sparrow by Molly Beth Griffin; The Silver Donkey by Sonya Hartnett; The Roundhill by Dick King-Smith;  The Blue Fox by Sjon; The News: Poems by Jeffrey Brown; On Speaking Terms by Connie Wanek.

For my current writing projects:

The Anatomy of Story, by John Truby; From Where You Dream, by Robert Olen Butler; Why Poetry Matters by Jay Parini; Telling Time by Nancy Willard.

Here’s to chilly days and colder nights!
