Sad When School Ends
I wrote an essay that told my biography in the form of a bibliography. Then I altered a book as a way to present it. The essay itself is cut into section and mounted on the cards, which fit into a niche that I cut.
If you haven't cut a niche in a book, you just haven't lived. At first it feels like a sacrilege, but once you get going, it is freeing.

I will always treasure this book because it captures the inspiration and spirit of the Writing Project. It reminded me of summer camp, where you forge deep friendships while learning new things. It was an adventure right here in Madison, with teachers from around the state. The philosophy of the program is that teachers have a lot of expertise and we are the best teachers for one another. I'm sold on that idea. The 16 other teacher-participants taught me so much.
