Shameless shilling

It's the holiday season -- don't you still have gifts to buy for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, etc.? Consider a super cool shirt / tote bag / mug from Book-Kitten's Treasure Chest. (There's a slide show in the right margin of this very page for a preview.) I have mentioned the store before, but want to highlight it again, because a bunch o' new designs have been added, especially for kids. Much of the artwork is papercuts made by yours truly... Please, at least take a look and let me know what you think!

In Memoriam: Bebe Moore Campbell

The talented and lovely Bebe Moore Campbell has died at the way-too-early age of 56 from complications related to brain cancer.

The New York Times has a nice article remembering Campbell:

"Along with writers like Terry McMillan, Ms. Campbell was part of the first wave of black novelists who made the lives of upwardly mobile black people a routine subject for popular fiction. Straddling the divide between literary and mass-market novels, Ms. Campbell’s work explored not only the turbulent dance between blacks and whites but also the equally fraught relationship between men and women."

Honor her memory by reading one of her wonderful books.
