Last night, the 6th, was the night of the harvest moon. Of course you couldn't see it because of the unceasing rain, but it was up there. The harvest moon is the first full moon after the autumnal equinox and was very late this year.
In the library: J PIC SKOFIEL Crow moon, worm moon; J PIC SCHAEFE Full moon barnyard dance; J PIC RYLANT Long Night Moon; J 398.26 MORONEY Moontellers : myths of the moon from around the world; J PIC HUNTER Possum's harvest moon; J 811.54 POLLOCK When the moon is full ... and of course many adult books. The titles just aren't as interesting.
