Greetings, new readers. Welcome to Chicken Spaghetti, a blog about children's books. I hope you will stay awhile and look around. You'll find news, reviews, links, chit-chat, and so on—all mostly about books for kids.
Basically, this is a one-woman show: I'm a mom with a blog. I was once employed by magazines: first Vogue, then The New Yorker, and later wrote theater reviews for New York Sidewalk, Microsoft's now-defunct online guide. I also co-edited an issue of Global City, which, by the way, plans to re-issue a 1997 anthology called Girls. A short story of mine appears in there.
From my blog's referrer statistics, I can see that some of you come seeking a recipe for a delicious chicken spaghetti casserole. I can relate; I am always on the lookout for the same thing. But, for now, you won't find it here; I haven't yet had time to post my favorite because I've been talking so much about books. Here is an idea for you. The web site and bulletin board Chowhound is an amazing place; although its focus is on restaurants, the site does have a cooking-at-home section.
Wherever you find your Chicken Spaghetti, whether it's here or elsewhere, enjoy! Come back for seconds, too.
