I love this season. I love that so many cultures have holidays this time of year, when it’s cold and the nights are darkest and we’re most in need of shared light and warmth.
It’s hard to pick a favorite CLiF event, but our holiday family events for Year of the Book communities are right up there.
We are thrilled to have a guest post today from Deb Nelson, CLiF board member and AP English teacher at Lebanon High School.
This past Friday I was picked up in the misty gray morning by my fellow board member, Jess Eakin, for our drive south to Concord where we spent the day in prison.
Happy Spring! Kind of. Nobody’s putting their skis away around here.
