Literary Lizard!

I just love that we have Little Free Libraries all over Tucson! Here is a particularly fun one that site follower David Aber forwarded to me. 

"NW corner of W. 2nd St. & N. 10th Ave. in the Dunbar/Spring Neighborhood. The gila monster, created by Hirotsune Tashima & Jason Butler, is reading a poem entitled, "The End of the Chapter" by Paul Laurence Dunbar. Poem note: This location has appeared in teh Daily Star's website (tucson.com) on 3/25/13 and 7/03/16 (not my photos). Here's the link: Tucson Oddity"


  1. Looks like a gila monster to me and that's something you want to confront only in a book or as a sculpture. I had one run over my foot in the desert north of Phoenix many years ago. What a scare that was!

    1. Yep, Lowell, you are correct but somehow "Literary Gila Monster" didn't quite have the same ring to it! (:

  2. I thought that was the Donald J tRump Presidential Library...
