Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming Up This Week

Horseshoe-banks of flowers,detail

It’s the last week of summer. In the U.S., the new school year has already begun and that always signals that autumn is here, even if the sun is still hot and the trees full green. No matter the season, the Foxes are always perusing interesting things and this week brings a more eclectic mix than usual, with art, humor, performance poetry and some seriousness in our offerings.

Monday- Hilary randomly stumbles upon a medieval foxes den.

Wednesday- Kirsty D finds that the audio book is the best way to absorb Kate Tempest’s Brand New Ancients.

Friday- The term ‘unsung heroes’ is hugely overworked, but Moira has been reading about a group of extraordinary people to whom it can be applied with complete accuracy.
