June 6, 2018, Wednesday afternoon -- Reading Roald Dahl

In the Mission District
She is reading, or re-reading, The Witches, by Roald Dahl. It's summer and she's getting in touch with her inner child again. Her favorite book is Holes, by Louis Sachar, another young adult novel. She read it as a kid and loved how it's darker than expected. Dark kid books, she said, help kids get ready for life.
