There are things that happen which thrill me and interest me. But rarely has something made me feel so honored. I will be speaking at the Celebration of the Book at the Grand Rapids Public Library on November 3. As a librarian, this is a high honor. I love books and revere authors. It's hard work to create a book and I don't say this to elevate myself, but rather as a tribute to those who have put in the hours translating their thoughts into words. Book junkie turns art junkie and does good. Hug an author today.
