Book Beginnings on Friday

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street by Michael Davis

"Joan Ganz Cooney walked toward the corner of Amsterdam Avenue and 112th Street, lost in a fog of grief."

So sad, she's heading to the funeral of Jim Henson who died unexpectedly of an untreated strep infection.

What a sad first line but so descriptive.
I posted my First Line Friday and mentioned your blog. I hope you don't mind :o)

Hi Carin,

I apologise for yesterday, I had an accident in the family and got a bit behind. My other friday post was scheduled to appear.

I have put it up now.

I really like that first line too, its sad.

If you decide to purge this one form your house, can I claim it? :-)
