Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt
After following a hart into the woods bordering her town, Keturah is faced with Death. But known as a storyteller, she charms Lord Death with a story of a girl seeking her own true love -- but the story has no ending. Lord Death makes a bargain with her: she has one more day of freedom to find her love, but if she doesn't, she must return to him and become his bride. Thus begins Keturah's search for her one true love and the salvation of her beloved town.
This was a wonderful story -- beautiful writing that portrays kindness, love, sorrow, fear, superstition, and passion. (Also a National Book Award Finalist). Spellbinding, just as Keturah's stories would be to her townsfolk, and highly recommended.

MOVIE -- UP, UP & AWAY
We had a great time at the movie yesterday -- popcorn, chocolate, and red vines graced the goodies table while Superman flew across the screen to save the world. If you couldn't make it this time, try to come next! We're bound to have another fun movie soon!
