Quote of the day for September 28th!

Nothing but writing rests me; only then do I seem completely myself! 


Kate Douglas Wiggin
Kate Douglas Wiggin (born September 28, 1856) headed the first free kindergarten on the West Coast, in San Francisco, and a few years later helped establish a training school for kindergarten teachers. Her children’s books are still favorites today, especially Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, which was made into a 1917 film starring Mary Pickford and a 1938 film starring Shirley Temple. Her autobiography, My Garden of Memory, was published the year she died, in 1923.
