I'm a YA author of Caught Between Two Curses and an MG author of Finding My Place. I love strong female characters and the book Half the Sky. I also love baseball, eating out, Boxer dogs, reading, being a mom, strong girls and women, inspiring quotes and funny TV shows. I don't like exercise that seems like exercise.

I’m a big fan of these “Last Lines” graphics that are going around, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon.
I’m sure there are plenty of other much better Rainbow Rowell versions, but here’s my contribution.
Yes, some of them have more than one sentence, so they’re not technically the last linE, and also I took out some “he saids” to make it look pretty.
I <3 Rainbow Rowell just a wee bit.
I’m also now super paranoid that these aren’t in fact the last lines at all. I did check my books so I’m pretty sure I’m right.

What a cute, cute Halloween book, which you can do so much with for preschool/Kindergarten children. First, it’s about Halloween and trick-or-treating, so you can share it at this time of year.

We live in a “diverse and often fractious country,” writes Robert Dawson, but there are some things that unite us—among them, our love of libraries. “A locally governed and tax-supported system that dispenses knowledge and information for everyone throughout the country at no cost to its patrons is an astonishing thing,” the photographer writes in the introduction to his book, The Public Library: A Photographic Essay. “It is a shared commons of our ambitions, our dreams, our memories, our culture, and ourselves.”
But what do these places look like? Over the course of 18 years, Dawson found out. Inspired by “the long history of photographic survey projects,” he traveled thousands of miles and photographed hundreds of public libraries in nearly all 50 states. Looking at the photos, the conclusion is unavoidable: American libraries are as diverse as Americans. They’re large and small, old and new, urban and rural, and in poor and wealthy communities. Architecturally, they represent a range of styles, from the grand main branch of the New York Public Library to the humble trailer that serves as a library in Death Valley National Park, the hottest place on Earth. “Because they’re all locally funded, libraries reflect the communities they’re in,” Dawson said in an interview. “The diversity reflects who we are as a people.”
