World Book Night

Be a Book Giver by Cindy Hulsey

Eighth grade.  I was sitting in Mrs. Wolffes’s English class wearing bell-bottom hip-huggers and a smock top.  I wore small gold wire-framed glasses and my nails were perfectly manicured in frosty lilac.  At the end of class Mrs. Wolffes approached me and said she had just finished a book she thought I would enjoy.  She gave me the title and the author’s name; Zelda by Nancy Milford.
