As many of you are, I am horrified at the devastation Hurricane Harvey brought upon the people of Houston, Texas. But natural disasters seem to bring out the best in people. One of these people is Kathryn Butler Mills, a teacher who created The Hurricane Harvey Book Club on Facebook after seeing photos of kids in bathrooms, under staircases and in pantries while tornado warnings were going off. The book club has gone viral with children, teachers, librarians and authors from around the world contributing videos of themselves reading books. At last count, there were over 70,000 members. When I was a kid, books were always a comfort for me when I sick or stuck in the house because of bad weather, so I decided to contribute a reading of my book The Fragrant Garden.
