Last Thursday night, I went to an event that Allison Pataki was doing for her latest historical novel, FINDING MARGARET FULLER. The book is an epic reimagining of the life of Margaret Fuller --- America’s forgotten leading lady and the central figure of the Transcendentalist movement. What amazes me about Allison’s work is not just her writing, which always draws me in, but her ability to introduce me to a woman in history who I feel like I should know about. And I wonder why I did not.

The weather in the New York area has felt like late May this week. Since we had a pretty mild winter, I find it’s been tough to keep the months straight. I am ready to start gardening and thinking summer things, but I know very well that next week the weather will turn back to March temperatures.
