I hope everyone had a great break from school! Whenever I travel, I make a point to visit literary locations: bookstores, libraries, authors’ homes, etc. Over break, I visited my old stomping grounds in NYC and checked out the public library and Books Are Magic, a Brooklyn bookstore. It was, indeed, magical. The children’s section in the back had a hexagonal book nook that my two year-old thoroughly enjoyed. I can’t wait to go back!
