What a wonderful addition to the WCAI lineup. Shelleys essays are so intimate. I think they must come from a place of quiet solitude actual or selfmade that allows her to ruminate without distraction and immerse herself into the idea, the character, the tale.

Camp Jabberwocky is considered to be the nation's first sleep over camp devoted to enriching the lives of people with disabilities. Helen Lamb, fondly known as Hellcat, founded the camp in 1953. She passed away last August. Her memorial service is scheduled for July 26 at the Oak Bluffs Tabernacle.
