“Reading is important — read between the lines. Don’t swallow everything.”
– Gwendolyn Brooks
About Gwendolyn Brooks
In 1950, poet Gwendolyn Brooks became the first African-American awarded a Pulitzer Prize. She was born in 1917 in Kansas and grew up in Chicago.
Her poetry often evokes the environment of Chicago’s tough South Side neighborhood. In later years her work became more overtly political, though she continued to combine an understanding of traditional forms like sonnets and ballads with the rhythm of the blues and experimental verse. She died in 2000.
I LOVE to read! I often thank God that I am able to read and write and have always excelled in spelling. It is something I am proud of! My coffee table always has a few different books that hold my interest.
Books I am reading now.
1. A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks.
2. Women, Food and God by Geneen Roth
3. How to Get Kids to Help at Home by Elva Anson
4. Younger Next Year for Women by Chris Crowley & Henry S. Lodge, M.D. (Huge thank you to my niece, Miranda for telling me about this book) Excellent book.
So there are some of my good reads! I have enjoyed reading since I was a little girl and couldn’t imagine not having a book close by.
Curl up with a good book and enjoy your day!
