I’m happy to have a short piece, “Love Letter to the Mercantile,” in this month’s issue of Talking Writing. Check it out—and while you’re there, take a look at some of the other excellent work featured in this issue that explores the provocative topic, Is Print Dead? Yet?
One day, libraries may become a relic of our pasts. I can still recall a movie we watched during “Library Period” in elementary school. (Yes, an entire period dedicated to the library!)

A librarian, Ms. Bookhart, somehow rescues planet Earth, saves all record of human knowledge found in a hidden, underground library, and, at the same time, instructs some children on the proper way to use the Dewey Decimal System. AWESOME!
