  1. Golly———-am I not only impressed, but impressed to the nth degree. I am so so pleased and happy for you, Ms. Peters——you have always been a hero to me—–your biographies are so sensitively done and beautiful. Thank you! The photo of you here is excellent too!
    Are you writing now? Poetry? Fiction? I think a children’s book about Hedgehogs is a great idea!
    With fondness and hope for more of your efforts! B & Sophie

  2. I obtained a copy of “Summers” by continuing my membership with Wisconsin Public Radio. I opened it last night and read it cover to cover. It’s a wonderful book and a wonderful story. Thank you for sharing it!
