  1. It’s been forever since I’ve been on here! I’m so glad you’re still doing these too! You’re so very talented at summing up the bios, the nonfiction, all of it. It’s very digestible and keeps it fun. By the by, never knew even the name Sybil Ludington until this one. 😀

    • Thanks! I’ve decided to get back at it; I’ve been missing it. A lot.

      I’m blogging about important women all month long.Personal learning and writing challenge for myself. I hope all is well with you!
