Explore Sensory Discoveries

At the beginning of October, my colleague Michael and I began presenting Sensory Discoveries storytime at CLP – Squirrel Hill. Sensory Discoveries is a program designed for children with autism and other sensory processing disorders, as well as peers of all abilities. It is a warm and welcoming space where children and their caregivers can gather to share stories, songs and hands-on activities.

The Mystery Behind the Final Girls

A lot of descriptions that I read for the book, Final Girls compared it to a slasher movie. After reading the book, I can see why. The premise is the same. A group of college kids go on a weekend trip to a cabin and then they get murdered by a crazed killer on the loose. This sounds like most slasher movies of the late ’70s and the ’80s, like Halloween and Friday the 13th series for example. There’s even a lone survivor left to tell the tale.
