Madeline Marsh , Feature Chief

My name is Maddie and this is my fourth and final year on the staff of SHS’ The Leaf. This year I am the Feature Chief. I loved to read, which lead to a love of writing. My favorite books are Anne of Green Gables and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Hot tea is my favorite drink, and a day of reading with tea sounds perfect. I am fascinated by people and apologetics. Get to know me more by my contributions to the website and The Leaf.

Jan Karon’s Mitford novels are New York Times best sellers. Coming Sept. 22 is the most recent Mitford novel Come Rain or Come Shine. Karon writes “cozy reads” that would lend themselves well to structured reading time.

Whether it is poetry, fantasy, historical, young adult, classic, or realistic fiction, even nonfiction, everyone has a favorite story. Some are new and exciting, like Plenilune by Jennifer Freitag, some are old favorites like The Return of the King. Still others are well thumbed and beautiful books of poetry. People’s favorite stories shape them, show a new side of them, and bookworms are always delighted to share their favorite titles. As Wessinger’s choice author, Tolkien, is quoted as saying “Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, dont we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if were partisans of liberty, then its our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!” Let us all escape to a new or beloved story world again.

When asked what book she wants everyone to read, Wessinger promptly said, “J.R.R Tolkien’s The Hobbit. I hope that after reading that they would want to look into the Lord of the Rings series, but I would recommend The Hobbit first.”
