thewifeybea : @lizschauerte I have never read the wildwood series! I am looking for a new book! I actually had been thinking of rereading screwtape letters but I kinda want a new one! I should check out wildwood ya? What is it about?
lizschauerte : It's actually classified as "children's adventure/ fantasy", which happens to be right down my alley lol. I picked it up cause everyone was comparing it to narnia. It's about a girl who's brother gets kidnapped, she has to save him and discovers a secret world in the forest, etc. It was written by the decemberists lead singer and his wife illustrated it. I wouldn't say it's quite as good as narnia but I'm biased because that's my fav series of all time. If you aren't into fantasy or young adult fiction, you may wanna pass it up as that's pretty much what it is. I really like it, though! There are 2 more books in the series. Screwtape is always a good choice, too! I haven't read it I a few years so I'm starting it up again, too. Too many books, too little time😊 @thewifeybea
thewifeybea : Haha! I don't know if id enjoy it or not! It really isn't my type of read but I Do like narnia soooo maybe I might! Haha!
aliwallin : The Narnia books are my absolute favorites of all time. I'm reading through then right now for the fifth or sixth time. I'm on the horse and his boy. So great😊
mwvies : 👌
lizschauerte : @aliwallin I used to read them every year as a kid. I don't even know how many times I've read through the series! They just get better when you are older, too. So much you understand more deeply as an adult, but still enough to captivate your imagination as a kid. So great!
marah_jean : Ooh I have been wondering about Wildwood. I love Carson Ellis!
lizschauerte : @marah_jean her work is so beautiful! Adds so much to the book. Worth it just for her illustrations😊

Do you know about the #Wildwood series of books? They're fun and beautifully illustrated adventures. And at the #PortlandLibrary illustrator #CarsonEllis has shown many of her original watercolors used in the books. I had a lot of fun examining all of it.

"Humanity does not pass through phases as a train passes through stations: being alive, it has the privilege of always moving yet never leaving anything behind. Whatever we have been, in some sort we still are." -C.S. Lewis, The Allegory of Love Thank you, Lewis, for summing up my heart for history in two convenient sentences.

Great way to spend my Saturday night! Celebrating the release of Wildwood Imperium with a book reading and signing with author Colin Meloy of the Decemberists and the illustrator Carson Ellis, who is "conveniently" his wife. They were delightful! Carson even obliged to draw a little doodle in my book! Truly admire them both. #thatisall #wildwood #colinmeloy #carsonellis #booksigning #malaprops
ellolovey : @veronicajarski Ha! Yes, Colin in a storytelling genius.
ellolovey : @christinesharpcrowe Dream come true!
ellolovey : @kimilove Soooo good 😊
ellolovey : @lifeasapepin I know! She tagged me in her post, but I didn't see it until afterwards 😢
ellolovey : @miekesmakes So happy!
ellolovey : @oslo_and_alfred Exactly! I picked up The Mysterious Benedict Society because of her lovely illustrations and have been enamored by her work ever since!
dsbarton : Are there any stores in Asheville that carry Filofax planners? Enjoy your posted doodles😊
ellolovey : @dsbarton I'm not sure!!

And then Carson Ellis and Colin Meloy (The Decemberists) came to #thekindezischool and gave all the students a copy of #wildwood
sdsingletary : What?!?
jdholzfaster : Amazing!!!
fiveinonesocialclub : neato, such a great book!
anda_marie : ?!
kdenke : #carsonellis #colinmeloy
kdenke : @anda_marie it was very inspirational. I wish I hadn't been too timid to go up and talk to them. I wonder if Colin remembers the catacombs and that crazy tornado night.
anda_marie : @kdenke how could he forget?! That was fun.
