Recently one of the ladies at the library celebrated twenty-five years working for our public library. Part of her gift was this mug which I was grateful to decorate with the term 'library' in many different languages. As much as I love images, words are just as beautiful. And I love these Starbucks mugs with a permanent marker that have both black & white tips. I'm thinking I may have to get one of these for myself. Hmmmm....what would I draw & write on it I wonder?
And speaking of libraries...I just finished the latest Giller Nominated book I was reading:
The Imposter Bride
by Nancy Richler
This story is set in postwar Montreal and begins with a woman traveling by the name of Lily Azerov, who arrives from Eastern Europe prepared for a pre-arranged marriage that doesn't occur, and ends up married to her intended's brother. Lily's cousin was present at the wedding, knowing that the bride was an imposter, and then Lily disappears mysteriously a few months after the birth of her child. Lily's daughter, Ruth, spends her life trying to uncover the secrets that her family keeps in order to find out who her mother really was...a definite page turner.
