Fifteen years ago, I completed this lifesize bronze child reading books for the Melrose (Mass.) Public Library. Since then, a friend in Melrose occasionally sends photos of the piece in curious situations. I couldn’t resist sharing this one. With about 100 inches of snow still mostly on the ground in the Boston area, kids visiting the library not only dug out the sculpture but put a hat and scarf on it. Nothing deters a dedicated reader!
Thanks to Kelly Paulson and family for keeping me up to date.
