A New Home For My Books... Brugh's Mill Country Store


For years, my family and I have been making it a point to stop at one of our favorite places while traveling south on Highway 81-Brugh's Mill Country Store located in Fincastle, Virginia.  We discovered this warm and welcoming restaurant and gift store by chance some eight years ago, and it has become my "go to place."

Celebrating National Literacy Month With Glenna's Book Club


September is National Literacy Month, a time to encourage people of all ages to select a good book, and explore new worlds.  Having been an educator myself for many years, I have always exclaimed to parents, children, and colleagues, to promote literacy and life-long learning through the love of reading-this will always remain a keen passion for me.  By getting books in the hands of people of all ages, communities of learners can understand the world beyond and how we are all connected.

Devon's Library Book Donations to RIF of NOVA

I hosted a Reading Is Fundamental of Northern Virginia meeting at my home on Tuesday, September 4.  During our meeting, we paid tribute to Devon and to both of his parents.  Devon's parents honored their unborn son by creating a beautiful library of 602 books to share with children in their community.
