My eldest, the fabulous Clelia Sweeney, is 27 today. I bought this bear about 20 years ago for her at Borders Books. He came with the name Chaucer. Clelia is earning her MLS degree in Urbana, now. Chaucer lives with me.

A strange time, today, to be celebrating my 30th anniversary in book publishing. 30 years ago this week I became the purchasing manager at Covenant Bookstore in Chicago, which was the store across the street from North Park Seminary, where I was a student.📚📚❤️🙏
