“He thought her beautiful, believed her impeccably wise; dreamed of her, wrote poems to her, which, ignoring the subject, she corrected in red ink.” ”—
Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf (published May 14, 1925)
Today’s a good day to correct with red ink or buy flowers yourself… or re-visit an old classic like Mrs. Dalloway. Or if you’d like to learn more about the inimitable author, visit the Library’s Berg Collection, which is a lovely spot to learn a great deal about English and American Literature. In any event, have a perfectly Dalloway day!
Love my library job...
- because I get to order YA books and get it into the hands of teen readers
- because the programs I plan involve such disparate elements as collage and laser guns
- because not only does my baby son get to visit me at work, he can check out the newest picture books at the same time
- because I don’t pay library late fees
- because public librarianship, for me, offers just the right blend of introverted and extroverted work, and of physical and mental work
