What I’m Reading: Jesse Gainer, Director, Rivera Children’s Book Award

By on

Gainer (1)I am currently reading Tino Villanueva’s, So Spoke Penelope. I heard him read a few of the poems when I was visiting Boston and I loved the idea of a whole book of poems relating the story of Penelope of Ithaca from her perspective during those 20 years Odysseus was absent from home. It’s about endurance and family love.
