You might ask why the Calgary Women’s Literary Club would be interested! However, a surprising number of our club members have inherited our forebears’ genes that place literacy and education above pretty much everything.

That includes me, CWLC webmaster! So how could I resist not sharing a fascinating National Post article, forwarded by Flora, on how the supremacy of English in all things digital is undermining the Icelandic language. And, of course, I must include a breathtaking photo! (How did people survive?)

Happy reading, happy August!
