This month, as we continue our focus on the authors and advisory board members that we are so fortunate to work with, we turn the spotlight on Page Lambert and Paul Theobald. Check back in January, as we finish up our authors series with a feature on Linda M. Hasselstrom.
Our Authors exhibit has been installed at Buena Vista University. The students pictured with Dr. Theobald are teacher education students–all very interested in the kind of curricular autonomy that would allow them to use a rural novel in class one day!
Thinking about the colder weather and having to be inside? It’s a perfect time to settle in with some cocoa, popcorn, and a good book. Think it’s stormy outside? Try the wintry descriptions in almost any rural novel, and you’ll want to throw another log on the fire and gratefully reflect on our modern conveniences! Suggested reading includes:
Country Schoolma’am (Della Lutes)
Land of the Burnt Thigh (Eudora Kohl)
Barren Ground (Ellen Glasgow)
An Iowa School Ma’am (Bess Corey)
Blizzard (Phil Stong)
The Lieutenant’s Lady (Bess Streeter Aldrich)
If you have a personal favorite to recommend, we’ll be glad to add it to our list – just drop us a comment!
