What’s happening, what’s on and what’s interesting this week …

Twenty years ago, a woman sat on a jury ago that handed down the death penalty to a man convicted in a double homicide.

Hey, It’s Photo Friday!

Our Rootle Kids Crew has recently moved to some very cool digs and the new work area is, as you might imagine, filled with all sorts of kid-friendly décor.

The book was published by Random House in 1987.
