Lest we forget

10 Nov

We get today off in observance of Veteran’s Day. When I began booktalking Monday, I was wearing a poppy I knit a few years ago. I told the kids that I will always think of November 11 as Remembrance Day and growing up, we always wore a poppy on Remembrance Day . I told them about my experiences as a school girl and Girl Guide attending Remembrance Day ceremonies in town halls and at cenotaphs. About getting weepy reciting “In Flander’s Fields” and visiting the War Museum in Ottawa.

Monday, I shared The Great War: Stories Inspired By Objects From The First World War by David Almond, Ursula Dubrovsky, Timothée de Fombelle, Michael Morpurgo, John Boyne A.L. Kennedy, Marcus Sedgewick , Adèle Geras, Tracy Chevalier (Goodreads Author), Frank Cottrell Boyce, and Sheena Wilkinson.
