AAAaaaand We’re Back

While the winter rages on, winter break has come to a screeching halt.  Hopefully everyone has enjoyed their vacations or staycations, because it’s back to the assignments and working and snow and afternoon coffee-jitters, and spring break it’s a long road to spring break.

It’s been raining a lot lately — good weather for reading. The best weather for going to a reading? Perhaps not. But that all depends on the reading you’re thinking about going to, and this reading is well worth it. So make like Donald Duck and break out your umbrellas and make your way to […]
