Cascading through Spring 2012 brings some bad news and a bit of good news in fiction…
First of all, the bad news: A local Norfolk bookstore is closing down June 1st, 2012 and the owner is saying, “Make me an offer”. You can have some 9,000 volumes of classics and reference materials for a loaded $15,000 dollars. See Bookstore Closing in Hampton Roads for more details.View slide show:Cascading through Spring Titles

Here’s the list you’ve been waiting for:
A modern-day girl is transported back to 16th-century England, where she gets to meet a young William Shakespeare.
Miranda has Shakespeare in her blood: she hopes one day to become a Shakespearean actor like her famous parents. At least, she does until her disastrous performance in her school’s staging of The Taming of the Shrew. Humiliated, Miranda skips the opening-night party. All she wants to do is hide.

Ruth’s grandmother lives in the forest, banished there for the “evil” that the townsfolk believed she practiced. But if studying the stars, learning about nature, and dreaming of flying is evil, then Ruth is guilty of it too. Whenever Ruth took food and supplies to her grandmother, she would sit with the old woman for hours, listening and learning.
When she wasn’t in the woods, Ruth was learning the trade of her father, a blacksmith, now that her brother would never return from the Crusades.
