(23rd in a series of posts on H.D.)
Bethlehem-born writer Hilda Doolittle — H. D. — (1886-1961) is
the “Lehigh Valley’s most important literary figure.”
What a difference one letter makes!
So Gadfly went all in for a donation to the GoFundMe for Angela Fraleigh’s commissioned portrait for the Bethlehem Area Public Library described to you in his last post on H. D.
He dug up a Chef Boyardee spaghetti can with cash in it planted in the backyard for safe-keeping during the Cold War and peeled off $100.
That figure shouldn’t scare you.
Just $5 – $10 each from certified, card-carrying Gadfly followers would seal the commission. More, of course, would be welcome.
Now if we and others don’t come through financially, it’s true that we have adorable options.
Just look at these contributions from H. D. fans among kid library patrons!
But don’t let the kids out-do us.
