For the next 26 weeks I will journey through the letters of the alphabet while connecting Readers and Writing. Come join me on a fun filled fling through the wonders of the written word.

Alexandria Library

If you ever wondered how long the written word has been around, let me introduce you to the Royal Library of Alexandria. 

This marvel of the ancient world was built in 283 BC in honor of Alexander the Great and was also known as the Museum. Part of its function was to serve as a shrine to the nine muses. It was also the home of an estimated half a million documents from Egypt, Persia, Greece, India and other countries. There were even full time scholars living at the library providing research, lectures, and other writerly duties.

The Museum was not only a shrine and a library but also housed gardens, a zoo, and lecture areas for people traveling from all around the world to visit.

Unfortunately there were a number of fires over the years which destroyed much of the archived literary works. Everyone from Caesar to warring Muslems and Christians or even atheists have been blamed for the loss of some of the most influential writings of the ancient world.


Addie comes from a long line of readers or "story catchers" as her family likes to call themselves. Every time Addie tries to catch a story on her own the wiggly words play tricks on her. She tries different ways to make those words sit still but it will take a little faith for Addie to become the next STORY CATCHER.
