    In two weeks, the REAL work will begin. We, the people, have a country to rebuild; respect to reclaim; COVID to fight and terminate; hatred, racism and prejudice to eradicate; a divided, violent country to bring together in peace. Can it be done? I believe in “we, the people” and our ability to accomplish these… Read more

  • ARTFUL READERS CLUB: A Ladder to the Sky by John Boyne

    September 29, 2020 by

    Maurice Swift is one of THE most devious protagonists I can ever remember in my readings. His goal is to be a great writer…to win the most prestigious literary prize. Unfortunately, he has no imagination, can’t decide on a theme or plot, and he’s unable to create interesting, believable characters. So, he uses his charm… Read more
