According to the Legend of St. Catherine, this young woman converted to Christianity after receiving a vision. At the age of 18, she debated 50 pagan philosophers. Amazed at her wisdom and debating skills, they became Christians—as did about 200 soldiers and members of the emperor’s family. All of them were martyred.
Sentenced to be executed on a spiked wheel, Catherine touched the wheel and it shattered. She was beheaded. Centuries later, angels are said to have carried the body of St. Catherine to a monastery at the foot of Mt. Sinai.
Devotion to her spread as a result of the Crusades. She was invoked as the patroness of students, teachers, librarians and lawyers. Catherine is one of the 14 Holy Helpers, venerated especially in Germany and Hungary.
The son of two librarians, Mark Stevens was raised in Massachusetts. After graduating from Principia College in Illinois, he worked as a reporter for The Christian Science Monitor in Boston and Los Angeles and The Rocky Mountain News in Denver. For six years, Mark produced television news for The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour and then returned to print, writing for The Denver Post. Those five years of reporting led to a position as Director of Communications with Denver Public Schools, where he worked for 11 years and then with the Greeley school district (one year) and the state department of education (four years) as director of communications. He now runs his own public relations and strategic communications business. Stevens has published three Colorado-based mysteries, Antler Dust (2007), Buried by the Roan (2011), a Colorado Book Awards Finalist, and Trapline (2014).

Thanks for your continued support. We do really appreciate you all taking time out of your Sundays to tune in and take part in the chat room.

CLOSE READING: MAKING E-BOOKS BETTER CURRICULUM TOOLS
Our guests is John Williams, Follett Learning's Director of Digital Products.
Reading to learn has never been more important, and writing with skill and focus can open more doors than ever before. As for arithmetic, well we all know that isn’t going anywhere any time soon. But in order to move forward into a brave new world of digital learning, we cannot forget the past, and at its heart are books. Reading and gaining a deep understanding of what is read is not exactly where Facebook posts, Tweets and dramatic headlines are taking us, but the essential skills of reading are the same. And so is learning to read for deeper understanding—close reading is more important than ever to better prepare students for what they will encounter in life.
