It's a new week...Valentine's week! Hope you have "love-ly" plans for the coming weekend.
I have not yet finished with Jacqueline Woodson's Feathers for, as usual, my schedule was hectic this weekend. It is a great read so far and I see why it is a Newbery Honor Book. She always brings so much to her characters.
Read her book, Locomotion, if you get a chance. I loved that one, too. The story is told through a young boy's free verse poetry. It's a powerful look at the life of an orphan in the city.
Speaking of poetry, The Spilled Bean is having a young person's poetry night Wednesday evening from 5 pm - 7 pm (February 11). They're calling the evening "Spilled Words". Isn't that a cool name? It is a senior project for one of the ACHS students, so stop by if you're feeling poetic to support her!
