Emily's Book

I am so proud of my daughter Emily who helped me start this blog and wrote the poems in the lesson Drawing - Illustrating poems. Her book, The Dragon Behind the Glass, has been named one of Library Journal's five best books of 2016 in science and technology.

"Voigt immerses readers in the ruthless world of the exotic fish trade that involves murder, smugglers, and globe-trotting. More than just a compelling tale, though, this is a perceptive work that examines layered themes about endangered species and our relationship to nature."

It is also one of five books shortlisted for the Pen/E. O. Wilson literary science writing award for 2017.
