Talk about an early Christmas gift! I just learned that The Kindness of Strangers was selected as the Clinton County Reads pick for 2010. There will be some events and readings connected with it in March and April. To add to the ego boost, other books on the short list that Kindness beat out were Toni Morrison's Beloved and Uncle Tom's Cabin. Wow. Wow. I can't stop grinning.
