  1. I am sure I will read A Fever in the Heartland sometime as I am a Timothy Egan fan.

    I also want to read Remarkable Creatures. I read a children’s book last year on the woman who discovered all the dinosaur bones and enjoyed it very much.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Tracy Chevalier is a very interesting author, and I particularly like Remarkable Creatures. I hope you enjoy it.
    best, mae at

  3. Glad you stopped by my blog last week. I may read A Fever in the Heartland. I recently found out that a fellow theater blogger will be collaborating with a local indie author to transition a book into a play. Sounds like something I want to do one day.

  4. I read A Fever in the Heartland — it is so well done and hard to read. I went to college in Evansville, IN and knew nothing about the klan’s presence there until I read that book.

  5. I think it was Susan at The Cue Card who recommended Nyad. There may have been others.

    A Fever in the Heartland: The Ku Klux Klan’s Plot to Take Over America, and the Woman Who Stopped Them sounds like a book I’d like. I bet it would be a great book for a discussion.

  6. The leaves on my trees are just starting the change. They won’t be quite as colorful as other parts of the world, but I enjoy what little fall color I can get. I hope your weather continues to be nice!

    I hope you are enjoying your reading! A Fever in the Heartland sounds so interesting and I keep hearing good things about Remarkable Creatures.

    I do want to see All the Light We Cannot See. I am still hoping to read the book first, but how many other shows/movies have I not seen yet because I say the same thing? Haha! Someday . . .

    That’s interesting about the history of the February holidays. In California, there are two holidays: Lincoln’s Birthday and President’s Day. I am not sure of the history of the two. I know my mom sometimes refers to President’s Day as Washington’s Birthday, which makes me think there must be a story behind that switch. Which now I know there is!

    I hope you have a great week. Happy Thanksgiving!
