Thank you, Dr. Anna L. Heatherly

The carts of used books for sale at my branch library are located just inside (or outside, if the weather's nice) the door.  I always take a peek at what's on the carts on my way in (or out) and sometimes bring a book or two home.  The last couple of months, I've been inadvertently collecting books from the library of Dr. Anna L. Heatherly, professor of education at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock.  Yesterday there was a hardcover copy of Hitty: Her First Hundred Years by Rachel Field, with illustrations by Dorothy P. Lathrop and the familiar red and brown calico-print dust jacket.  Hitty!  I'm waiting for a cold quiet night so I can curl up with you.
