Book choices range from whimsical to solemn, classic to contemporary, and most every place in between.

Ever since E.B. White spun this classic tale of Charlotte’s Web in 1952, readers have been captured by its barnyard magic. Wilbur the pig and Charlotte the spider, through subtle meditations on death and change, illustrate better than any human what it means to be humane. Some book.

“As a piece of work it is just about perfect, and just about magical in the way it is done.” – Eudora Welty

Check it out at Seattle Public Library. Please consider buying your Bushwick choices with their local bookstore partner, Third Place Books.

Heads up: readers must bid farewell to a beloved character, who reaches a gentle and natural end by the novel’s close.
