A new graphic novel edition of ‘The Yellow Wall-Paper’

Last month Tweetspeak released a graphic novel edition of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s classic short story, illustrated by Sara Barkat. It’s not only beautiful but brings depth and nuance to the tale. If you’re a teacher, if you’re a reader, pick up this one!

I’ll be leading a book club in April, so stay tuned!

December 30 at the indoor pool my Jehovah’s Witness

friend does not ask how Christmas went,

who came (or didn’t).

She is as unrushed as she was last week, before

the holiday. Today is Monday.

She wishes me Good morning!

and it is good.
