Sure you read (and re-read) the Little House on the Prairie series. Yeah, you hated Nellie Oleson with a passion. C'mon, who didn't? Maybe you dressed as Laura for Halloween for a couple of years. And hey, you watched it after school every day.
BUT did you know this about the cast of your beloved show?
We'll never view Pa the same again...

Come to the Munson every single Wednesday* for the rest of the calendar year. You can put away your Magic 8 Ball because all your questions will be answered by Dr. Hank.
*Well, not the day before Thanksgiving since you'll be cooking and all. And not Wednesday 12/23. But other than that...

In 1962 Florence and Edward celebrate their wedding at a hotel on the coast of Dorset. Each brings different experiences and expectations to their first night together, and they are unaware that decisions made that evening will have dramatic consequences for the future. This is a story described as how lives are transformed by gestures not made, and words not spoken. It is a short, beautifully written novel that lingers long after reading it.
