September is Literacy Month!

Campaigning for Literacy does not have to be hard or expensive. It's a lot about one individual helping another. There are organizations throughout the country where you can volunteer in many different capacities. And we want to know about them so we can share them with everyone!

Between now and October 16th, tell us about an organization in your area that is helping to promote literacy and you will be entered to win signed copies of Shamrock Alley and Eli the Good. For more info click here.

A great example of an organization is Open-Books in Chicago. For volunteer opportunities go to Open-Books.

Emily's Ghost Emily's Ghost
By Denise Giardina

A lustrous, beautifully written reimagining of the Brontë family—and of Emily Brontë’s passionate engagement with life. Enigmatic, intelligent, and fiercely independent, Emily Brontë refuses to bow to the conventions of her day: she is distrustful of marriage, prefers freedom above all else, and walks alone at night on the moors above the isolated rural village of Haworth. But Emily’s life, along with the rest of the Brontë family, is turned upside down with the arrival of an idealistic clergyman named William Weightman.

"Giardina (Saints and Villains) offers Brontë fans a solid biographical novel portraying sisters Anne, Charlotte and Emily as different in temperament but in love with the same man, fighting the same illnesses and withdrawing from the same grim realities to write poetry and fiction that express their individual passions. " -Publishers Weekly
