I was at the library today and there was a mom and her two daughters there. They were talking among themselves, and I overheard one of the girls complaining that she didn’t know what to read. I don’t normally talk to strangers but I decided to speak up and recommend a book, The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. I ended up having a twenty minute conversation with all of them about books and authors and poetry. Maybe I should speak up more often. It was wonderful.

THANK YOU. Also, YES, speaking up CAN BE WONDERFUL.
