So, as readers of Read it or Weep have come to learn, we are playing Winter Reading Bingo here at Rocky River Public Library. Earn a bingo square by completing the (fun and edifying) task.

Collected Poems by James Wright, newly acquired by RRPL:
Two collections of novels by Dawn Powell (you could read just one novel in the book – each book has a few novels by her):
