As I wait for the official release of The Button Collector on Monday, May 6, I browse the internet for related stories.  This morning, I came across this story about Deb Chrowl,  a button collector in Oregon, that gave me goosebumps because of the similarities with my book.  I especially like the historical nugget Ms. Chrowl shared about the tradition of Victorian era girls collecting 999 buttons on a string with the hope that the 1000th button would come from their true love.
