Nebraska couple dons original wedding dress, suit in sweet photo after 60 years of marriage

On Witness and Respair: A Personal Tragedy Followed by Pandemic – I once had the privilege of being on a book festival panel with Jesmyn Ward and a handful of other authors. It was so early in her career that she didn’t realize that *she* was the gifted one. Read this and you’ll understand.

Reclaiming a hero who tried to save President McKinley – Please read (and consider sharing) this thoughtful piece on Jim Parker, a Black man whose heroism was erased – and the efforts to restore him to memory. Thanks to Sean Kirst for inviting me to do some sleuthing on this. 🙏

Through some internet sleuthing, a stranger from Maryland was able to track down my grandmother to send her something he found while volunteering at a used book drive: a telegram of her birth announcement…from 1928. – For those on Twitter, I got to help out with the coolest orphan heirloom reunion!

Explaining genetics: 😆
