The Sisterhood of Books – Pat Stephenson

Princess Pat with Mary Barrett
It is lovely to recognize our wonderful volunteers. Pat Stephenson has been such a magnificent supporter of the Rochester Public Library and a great Friend to all. Many people asked after the song “Sisterhood of Books” that was written for Pat’s award last month so we have reproduced it here for you! All together now!
Pat’s Song
To the tune of “There is a Brotherhood of Man”
from the play How to Succeed in Business Without Even Trying.
There is a sisterhood of books
A benevolent sisterhood of books
And tho she won’t be here
Toward good books us to steer
Pat leads the sisterhood of books.
A teacher newly hired has come
To a room without a book, not one
Then Pat is on the scene
With fiction unforseen
Pat leads the sisterhood of books
A reluctant child appears to seek
Another AR book, a goal to meet
And Pat just waves her arm
Directs with all her charm
Pat leads the sisterhood of books
When going on a trip you need
That certain special book to read
She’ll take you by the hand
And give suggestions grand
Pat leads the sisterhood of books.
There is a sisterhood of books
A benevolent sisterhood of books
And tho she won’t be here
Toward good books us to steer
Pat leads our sisterhood of books!

AND – if you are missing Pat’s suggestions for books try the  Readers Choice (200 Book Club Favorites) by Victoria Golden McMains (2000) who collected suggestions from more than 70 reading groups nationwide.
