the Newbery ate my brain

February 25, 2009 at 7:57 pm (books, library)

Or is eating it.  Not sure which is more accurate.  I haven’t taken a class in a long time and this one is fun.  But  I swear it is all I can talk about.  I haven’t  yet started quzing people on the street about which ones they’ve read, but anyone that is willing to talk books for a few seconds gets the quiz:

Did you read …..How old were you when  you  read… what did you think and do you think you would think the same thing now…what other Newbery books have  you read?

    Hi Beth – we were at the Newberry Library last year for the wedding of one of Susan’s dear friends. It was a fabulous affair. Have you physically visited the building? While we were living in Illinois, in a suburb of Chicago, and Jim was working on his PhD at Northwestern [as well as teaching there], he spent hours and hours down at the Library. It’s a grand old place and a joy to work in – at least it was then. Looking forward to hearing more from your studies!

    I don’t think I even realized there was a Newbery Library.
