For the love of snow days, books... and survival? 
"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, 'Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'"
And so the story goes... after an abundance of days of winter joy - whether you played out in the snow or bundled up with the perfect book by the fire - it's time for us all to return to school and share our stories of how we each survived #Snowmageddon 2019.

Thank goodness the snow came last weekend! Eagle Harbor Book Co. has some thrilling events planned for teens this Sunday and we want everyone to attend - warm and safe! ...and to (literally) survive another day.
