Weekend Links

Weekend Links – February 16 2019

I find so many wonderful links each week and they aren’t all post-worthy but I don’t want anyone to miss out so I will be rounding up some of my favorites to share as weekend links on Fridays or Saturdays or whenever I get around to it. LOL.

Of course, I also post a lot each week on my Facebook page and Pinterest page. I would love to have you join me there!

Tales from Shakespeare’s Charles Lamb

Charles-Lamb

This week was the birthday of Charles Lamb, who wrote Tales from Shakespeare with his sister. I read this article in the Guardian and discovered some things I did NOT know about the author.

“In the autumn of 1796, at the age of 21, Charles Lamb, a city clerk with a lifelong stutter, came home from his desk at the East India Company to find that his sister, Mary, had stabbed their mother to death in a mad seizure.”
