I’m excited to be part of the Book Moon community as a volunteer. Many years ago I loved working part time in a delightful NC children’s bookstore, B. Dolphin, that was beloved in Greensboro. Books for children have been my passion since my own three children were little. When I give books to new babies, I always include this quote: “Richer than I you can never be — I had a mother who read to me.” (Strickland Gillilan) I spent my childhood in Charlotte, NC and returned to Durham, the city where I was born, for college. I’ve lived in Philadelphia, Chattanooga, Miami and Greensboro before moving to Northampton. I have 3 wonderful, book loving children: Kelly lives in Northampton, Holly in Philadelphia, and Ben in London. My granddaughter, like her mother, is a speed reading bookworm. In my next life I’d like to be able to read at least 1/2 as fast as they do.
