Laurie Graves is a terrific writer and a good soul who blogs at Notes from the Hinterland,
“in which a Maine writer reflects about nature, living in a small town, people, social concerns, art books, and food.”Laurie Graves
Laurie is also a fiction writer who recently completed the fourth and final book in The Great Library Series.
Of Time and Magic is dedicated to Laurie’s blogging friends, where she notes that the Great Library novel series has traveled the world.
I enjoy supporting independent writers and the Little Free Library movement, so it was fun purchasing several copies to share in our communities’ Little Free Libraries, or LFLs.
Here are a few:
This gorgeous library is in the Cambrian District of San Jose. It’s a delight.
We have two small libraries in our front yard. A friend built the first library using reclaimed wood. Then, a few years later, Donna Pierre gave it a complete makeover. When the pandemic hit three years ago, and we were all shut down, I put a clear bin outside with children’s books. Kids were out of school, so a book box dedicated to young readers and later crafting kits were a hit. Eventually, I bought a second book box from the non-profit Little Free Library to replace the sun-damaged bin, and once again, Donna worked her magic.
In short, I love books and sharing books, and what could be better than sharing books written by a wonderful blogger who’s written four novels about the Great Library?
