Lisa Graff, an author who teaches children's literature at McDaniel College, can't read a map to save her life. She's terrible at crossword puzzles, has trouble telling her left hand from her right and uses far too many exclamation points. While she was growing up in California in the 1980s in the shadow of a brilliant older brother, young Lisa became convinced that she had no special talent. She thought of herself as utterly, unspectacularly average. But Graff must have been good at something, because she grew up to become a respected author of children's books: six for younger students and a seventh for teens under the pseudonym Isla Neal.

More than three dozen new charges have been lodged against a man who was arrested March 31 and accused of assault and reckless endangerment after a woman told police she was held captive for six weeks in a Carroll County home. With the new charges, William Thomas Parrish III, 25, of Reisterstown, faces a total of 44 counts, including first-degree rape, second-degree rape, sodomy and false imprisonment.

The board of Annapolis' sole homeless shelter will vote this week on a $6.8 million plan to leave West Street and open a larger facility near the Parole border. If approved, the new Light House Shelter would open in a 12,000-square-foot building at 11 Hudson St., about 1.5 miles from its cramped site at 206 West St. It would have 50 beds and five apartments for families, along with a drop-in center for the homeless honoring the memory of a slain Annapolis archaeologist. The tentatively named Katherine Randolph White Memorial Center would also give people who don't want to stay in shelters a place to shower and receive mail.
