April 20 – Books for little people —> Rx 4 Reading Detroit

Wednesday  April 20

I’m traveling the rest of this week, to Denver for a Board of Trustees meeting at Regis University.   It makes a good opportunity for re-play two late April posts from last year, both guest edited.  Today features Detroit Mercy professor Mary-Catherine Harrison, who along with lots of creative entries into the learning process typical of a passionate faculty member, is the founder of Rx For Reading Detroit.  Her 2015 post recorded the installation, across the street from Detroit Mercy’s campus, of another  “Little Free Library” for children.

Emily Dickenson’s “There is no Frigate like a book” takes the instinct of Rx for Reading Detroit back c. 150 years.  The photos of children and college student tutors are more recent and completely beautiful.  Check the Rx facebook site for up to date pics.

Another guest editor Friday.  Back home next Monday.
