“It was times like these when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived.”

–from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Hello, all!  Hope you guys had a good week.  Mine has been filled with writing and lots of social events (because everyone goes crazy when it’s not freezing in Boston).

A friend and I made a pact that we would write twenty pages of our novels per month, or else we wouldn’t be able to drink coffee for a month.  A pretty dreadful punishment, right?  The reward for fulfilling our pact is burgers and beer on the 15th of each month, so I’m happy to say that we’re headed to Mr. Bartley’s Burger Cottage on Sunday.

Here are some links for Father’s Day / World Cup weekend:

Nerd-tastic:  Rock a pair of frames like your favorite bespectacled character, including fictional father Atticus Finch.

Poems by Ted Kooser  (including  one called “Father”).

Soccer Moms” by Paul Muldoon.

The writer who designed Brazil’s soccer uniform.

Hillary Clinton reacts to her one-star Amazon book reviews.  Ha!

Our program director, Leslie Epstein, recommends The Flamethrowers by Rachel Kushner.

Owls is available in paperback now!  And I got to meet David Sedaris last weekend!

I bought this cheese-making kit for my dad.  And here’s a “touching, ‘telling’ book about cheese.”

Did you know this about Elizabeth Pain?  I did the Freedom Trail Run last Saturday and saw her grave!  (And highly recommend that running tour.  It’s as dorky and fun as it looks.)

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
