It would’ve been Peg’s favorite . . .


If Octavia Books had been around in the 1960s (and I’m fairly certain it wasn’t, but I could be wrong), Peg certainly would have hung out there –at least when she wasn’t hanging out at the Napoleon Avenue Library.

And since Mimi grew up on Octavia Street (on the other side of St. Charles), it is entirely fitting that “Thanksgiving” is featured in the December-January issue of The Octavian, Octavia Books’ newsletter. Check it out!
