"The Playgroup" this week, and this afternoon friends from all corners of her life gathered in appreciation of both her work and her spirit.
I came home with 114 photographs and share but a handful of them here. There's Chris, Libby's cupcake-stacking husband. There's Libby's youngest, Cat, on the right, tempting the rest of us with treats. There's Libby herself, reading to those who gathered, and, below her, her eldest, Alison, listening to words long-wrought and savored. Finally, among the cast of mothers, teachers, friends, and writers stood Kelly Simmons, whose second novel, The Bird House, I loved, and Lynn Rosen, the creator of the fabulous Open Book series.
