Thursday This and That

This and that...

  • This year's Michigan Reads selection is now posted.  The book is The Runaway Garden, written by Midland resident Jeffery L. Schatzer and illustrated by Jeffrey Ebbeler. The book is published in Ann Arbor by Mitten Press.  Congratulations!

  • As barefooted, bad-tempered babies know, a protest crawl is a very effective form of civil disobedience. But let us not forget about the sit-in. Or, in this case, the read-in. NYC librarians have an all-night read-in scheduled for June 12-13 in support of the New York City Public Library systems. As the librarians say, "We Will Not Be Shushed!"

  • I was on the radio the other day, on WILS-AM 1320.  I was no doubt rambly and ridiculous-sounding, and I don't plan on going back to listen to it; but if you'd like to hear it, it's here.  Jack Ebling, the host of the show, was very nice.

  •  New favorite way to learn new words:  Shay's The Word videos on the Maria's Bookshop blog.  Get started with "aleatoric" here.
