My Dears, for the new year, I thought I’d try something a little different for the calendar in my News & Events tab…

I’ll be sharing a quotation from a celebrated author, one per week or so, along with the listings of readings, signings, and other author events of my own…and of course a few other significant events in my life…such as my husband’s birthday and my birthday and our dogs’ birthdays – as best as we can imagine, given that they’re all rescues, of course…

 You get the idea…

 Enjoy! And may we all savor liberal amounts of joy and justice in 2019!

    January 27 – “Alexander Pushkin duels with Georges D’Anthes, dies two days later,” on this day in 1837.
    Jan 27 all-day

    Okay, I’m just going to come out on the anti-dueling side at this point…

    January 30 – “Burned Library of Congress reestablished with Thomas Jefferson’s donation of 6,500 volumes,” on this day in 1815.
    Jan 30 all-day

    So much good after such a tragedy. Yay for libraries, yay for books.
