Somehow April is best known for its showers that bring May flowers. But don’t be “fooled” by COVID or traditional thoughts as April is also the month when we celebrate International Children’s Book Day and World Book Day as well. So, enjoy the spring weather, dodge the raindrops and visit Century Walk’s “Reading Children” sculpture at the southwest corner of Nichol’s Library. If the boy can enjoy reading while doing a handstand, you will equally enjoy seeing how he does it.

“Others have been made fools of by the girls; but, this can never be with truth said of me. I most emphatically, in this instance, made a fool of myself.”
—Abraham Lincoln, Letter to Eliza Browning, April 1, 1838
