I am currently reading Dangerous Neighbors by Beth Kephart (due out Aug. 24, 2010). It takes place in Philadelphia, my home town, in 1876; the year of the Centennial Exposition. The main characters of the book, Katherine and Anna, attend the Girls Normal School. Well this totally brought a smile to my face. Why? Because I graduated from Girls Normal School. Therefore, I thought I would give you some background on this extremely unique school and why it will always be a piece of me.
I could go on and on about more traditions and such, but I won't. I just wanted to highlight this place because Kephart mentioned it in her book and it tickled me pink.
