Valentine’s Day 2021

Vincent has been my one and only Valentine since we met in March of 1977. Yesterday we exchanged some cool gifts.  A few weeks ago, while browsing Instagram, I saw a post about a box of cookies, hand decorated for Valentine’s Day by a company named So Bang. I went to their website to discover that they create customized, shortbread cookies for all occasions and also for companies such as Cartier, Conde Nast, Dior, Gucci, and Vogue.  I ordered the box and they even hand wrote a note with...

Interestingly, the book was published in a number of other countries before the USA, and Janet would share on Facebook the rave reviews The Paris Library received in Italy, France, and Romania.   ​Based on the true World War II story of the heroic librarians at the American Library in Paris, this is a...
