The bookcharmer is engaged in one of her most dearly held tasks, reviewing actual books, matching the representation of knowledge (book record) with artifact (book). Today, I have some children/ya titles to consider. One author in the collection Juanita Havill, is known for her title Jamaica's Find. In looking up this title, I find this enrapturing subject heading:
Lost And Found Possession--Fiction
Isn't that fantastic? A subject heading for Lost and Found! With subdivisions. 209 titles in the merged SJSU/SJPL catalog! There's an Italo Calvino bookshelf for you: what book could one write about 209 lost and found stories?
