Thoughts on reading and happenings in school libraries
Monday, July 4, 2011
Have just finished reading Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks. Loved that she took a tiny thread of factual material and created such a readable, believable story. Historical fiction is what helped prompt me to choose history as my undergraduate concentration. Seems to have a reputation today as "bodice tearing romances"....this is definitely not that. Extremely well done.
