Dear reader, I hope you can join me for a low-key get-together in Raleigh on Sunday, September 20. Meet us at 5:30 p.m. at the Skybox Grill at the Hilton North Raleigh/Midtown (3415 Wake Forest Road)
The meetup is happening right after Triangle Reads. If you’d like to join us for the event (beginning at 2:00 p.m. for FREE, email firstname.lastname@example.org, tell them you’re an MMD reader, and you can attend afternoon sessions at no charge.
Hope to see you there!
My favorite finds from around the web:
• What’s inside Jackson Pollock’s address book? A new exhibition reveals the intimate details inside the “little black books” of some of America’s great artists.
• How I keep track of what I’m learning, from Emily Freeman. Because I fell down the bullet journal rabbit hole.
• How schools are handling an “overparenting” crisis. “Watch what happens when you go to a teacher and say, “I’d like to give my child some increased autonomy this year, so I won’t be meddling in his homework and I’d like for you to hold him accountable for the consequences of his mistakes.” You will have an admirer for life.”
• 13 texts toddlers would send if they could. These made me laugh out loud.
What my kids are reading:
Forget what I’m reading: I thought you’d rather see these beauties. My daughters discovered the Baby-Sitters Club series, and we quickly discovered that our local library only carries eight of the now hundred-something books.
I ordered these off ebay (because I have no clue where my own 40-something BSC books from my childhood ended up) and they have been reading, reading, reading.
I haven’t done any reading yet, but I’m thinking about it. I’m curious about what my adult self would think about the books I was so obsessed with as an eight-year-old.
On the blog:
One year ago: The bored housewife as plot point.
Two years ago: On marriage and fear and disappearing doors.
Three years ago: 21 things I wish I knew in my twenties.
Four years ago: Best book you’ve never heard of on … housekeeping.
Have a great weekend!
