In other news...
I wasn't the only one who paid a visit to a cozy homestead full of cats this month. Librarian Lesa of Lesa's Book Critiques spent a few days at the Chapel Hill branch of the Macmillan Library Marketing Department (a.k.a. the Sherer's new home)! She reported on all of their adventures—literary, culinary and otherwise—in Life at the Sherer's.
"Books, food, animals. It's all a treat with John and Talia." —Lesa
Rumor says Marcie is a five-star hostess.
Have a wonderful short week, everyone!
