Thank You For Visiting My Website
This site is not affiliated with or supported by any institution or organization. It is a personal project. It’s where I place items I find interesting, meaningful or useful. I am an avid reader (mainly History and American Studies with some Social Science, American Literature and Golden Age Science Fiction) and hope to share some of that love of reading with others in a way I think might be especially helpful to teachers. I also enjoy American Studies and looking at the cultural mythology that shapes the United States.
Thanks to everyone that helps me with this. We don’t accept donations, but please consider supporting homeless youth through either the Los Angeles Youth Network or The Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles
Anything good you find here should be credited to the authors mentioned in the reading lists. Any errors are my own. I’m sorry that I am unable to answer the emails I receive. Thank you for understanding.
