Always We Remember/September Lullabye

Always we remember.  Every few years, it seems appropriate to reprint this selection written shortly after the devastation of September 11 2001, and eventually published in  my New York Reader (Sleeping Bear Press). In this present moment of loss, uncertainty and fear, it seems fitting for me to post today. 

September 11, 2001 started out as a beautiful fall day It was sunny, bright and full of

Unbound by Ann E. Burg
"I read Unbound in one night. It's an easy read, thanks to the verse and colloquial writing style that feels natural to southerners. But just because it's simply written, doesn't mean it doesn't have punching power.

Unbound is a beautiful, spiritual s" Read more of this review »

“Sometimes the words people don't say are as powerful as the ones they do.”
Ann E. Burg, All the Broken Pieces

“Maybe love is like
a monsoon rain.
When it rains
really hard and heavy,
it seems like
it will never end
and we'll swim in mud
forever.

But then the wind shifts
and the earth grows
dry and cracked.
Every gurgle and ooze
tiptoes away
and we're left wishing
and waiting
for rain again.

Maybe love is like that.
Maybe the wind shifts
and love just tiptoes away.”
Ann Burg, All the Broken Pieces

“Words are messy,
but sometimes,
words are all you've got
to show what matters most.”
Ann Burg, All the Broken Pieces

What Book Shall We Read in August?

I have chosen books that are getting a lot of attention, or whose authors have other Newbery awards, and were published in March and April. My hope is that a lot of libraries might have them in their shelves by now. Please let me know if you think a book should be added to the list.

If you get the chance, check and see what your library has before you vote.
