Another busy week has just wrapped up here at JIAB headquarters. It was a bittersweet week of highs and lows as well. I was so sad to hear of Vera B Williams death. She contributed greatly to so many in the wonderful literature she wrote . You will be greatly missed Vera.
Then there were light-hearted milestones like the fact that one of my favorite books, Caps for Sale, turned 75.
But like all weeks, I discovered some wonderful reading nuggets of gold.
Here are some of my top picks:
