One of my very first favorite strong female characters, Cimorene from the Enchanted Forest Chronicles wasn’t your stereotypical princess (even before she was Chief Cook & Librarian).

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
The Seventh Street Entry is a tiny club attached to First Avenue, my favorite venue in the Twin Cities.
