Freedom Train: The Story of Harriet Tubman by Dorothy Sterling

Thank you, Scholastic Books!

It was fascinating to me and I just read it over and over again, often starting over right after I'd finished a turn.

I think it's fucked up that Trump has delayed putting her image on the $20 bill.

IMO, she is the quintessential American hero.

My most read book was Hiroshima by John Hersey. My older brother had it, and I found it and stupidly read it.

I prayed nightly that - when it finally happened in the US - God would cause the bomb to drop directly on my house instantly vaporizing us so that we would not survive long enough to see our skin slough off us in giant sheets before dying in acidic pools of radioactive rainwater.

"Francie saw the tree leave his hands. There was a split bit of being when time and space had no meaning.... She staggered as the tree hit them. Neeley went down to his knees but she pulled him up fiercely before he could go down.... "And now get the hell out of here with your tree, you lousy bastards"...when Francie heard themselves called lousy bastards she smiled tremulously at the kind man...She knew that he was really saying, "Goodbye- God bless you."

"A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith, however manipulative,corny, deep, and poignant, still is, imho, the best popular family novel. I read it as on older child. It was the first "adult' book I read. To this day, I still pick it up and re-read certain parts.

A loved one of mine who is now deceased, when we were adults and knowing how much I loved the novel, inscribed an early edition and gave it to me for my birthday. She wrote "We all have our Christmas trees to catch, I hope you catch yours." ( Crying as I type.)

It's impossible to choose only one. I was obsessed with books when I was a kid. First book I remember loving was "les marais de la mort" from a science fiction series for kids by Philippe Ebly (I'm french). I also loved the Arsene Lupin series. I used to daydream of being a gentleman thief. Then I read the Lord of the Rings when I was 10 and I was blown away.

I loved "The Boxcar Children" series by Gertrude Chandler Warner. I even envisioned as a young gayling the cast. One of the later books had an elderly great aunt introduced to go along with the grandfather they originally feared but came to love. I cast Laurence Olivier in my mind as the grandfather (having just seen "Clash of the Titans") and Bette Davis as his estranged sister, having just seen "Watcher in the Woods".

“The Magic City,” by E. Nesbit.

My mother, born in 1909, was an Anglophile collector of now obscure British authors. She read Nesbit’s books to me and my two older brothers. Nesbit created the paradigm of four young siblings having magical adventures, later copied by C.S.Lewis. Such titles as “The Enchanted Castle, “Wet Magic,” “Five Children and It,” are all wonderful.

But my favorite is “The Magic City,” about a boy, alone in a Victorian country house, who constructs a city, made of period bric-a-brac. Dominos make a floor, moroccan-bound books make walls, upended candlesticks become pillars, with an upturned ornamental bowl for a dome. And, of course, the boy is able to go inside, and have fantastic adventures. It would make a great movie.

I was so inspired that I built my own city, which took up most of the space in my room. Over the years, as I became more and more interested in the ancient world, it grew and morphed into a more Classical assemblage. (I still have photos of it somewhere, and a friend even made an 8 mm film.)

Nesbit’s books are still in print. They are well worth reading.

"Sneezer"--- this was sort of like one of those Golden Book type books that parents read to their kids. It had been a favorite of my older brother who of course outgrew it, and my Dad started reading it to me and I loved it dearly. It is also a very dear memory of my Dad that he read it to me so often. It got thrown out or given away. As a teenager, I cried. As an adult, about ten years ago, a fellow teacher found a copy on ebay and gifted it . She remembered me referencing it and the fact that I figured that a copy could not be found. Very much not much of a literary masterpiece, even for a children's book that was never going to be nominated for a Caldecott Medal, but I am so indebted to Sara, who helped me reconnect with an actual copy of "Sneezer".
