Welcome to Copley Classics fellow authors, bibliophiles, bloggers, librarians, and students! So…why create a website about the Great Literary Classics? Simple! I am passionate about three things: my husband Carl (an avid golfer), drawing (mainly portraits and master copies), and reading. Aahhh, reading–that heart-stopping, brain-challenging pastime that drives me into comfy corners with cups of tea, chocolate, and dog-eared volumes of Austen, Wilde, Twain, and Tolstoy.
Over the next three decades–if I am fortunate to live that long–I will write reviews and record audio extracts from my favorite Classics. I will include selections from fiction, drama, and poetry. Please join me on Copley Classics for a lifetime of literary adventures from inspiring works that inform our minds, elevate our spirits, and touch our human hearts.

VIDEO: THE MUSIC MAN🎶 Here is a little video clip, set in a library, from one of my favorite musicals. Unfortunately, the second half of the song is missing, where Professor Hill, Marion the Librarian, and all the patrons partake in a riotous dance. However, you can buy this musical on TCM.com, or check it out from–dare I say it?–your local library. Enjoy!
