Lerner Publishing sent four books to my library as a prize from Book Expo America, Draw In The Dark by Ilsa J. Bick, Traitor by Gudrun Pausewang, I-1I by Steve Brezenoff, and The Freak Observer by Blythe Woolston. These are all young adult titles.
Today was a very busy day. The shifting in the storage area is moving along nicely. We also have to work on the Adult Summer Reading Program. The Evance website is moving along nicely. There are several events that are associated with adult summer reading including some author readings, two brown bag book discussions, and a literary tea for the finale. We are going to be signing up people via our website soon. The Friends of the Library will be helping us with putting together the literary tea for adults.
We also have to work on creating a display for summer reading. I have a few ideas for bookmarks, a brochure, some signage, and a flyer. It is a lot to plan on.
We put up a new sign for the foreign language books and I finished creating a bookmark for Chick Lit.
On the way home, I read some more of Margaret Maron Bootlegger's Daughter. The main character, Deborah Knott's father sold bootleg whiskey and went to jail then was pardoned. The novel has a lot of politics in it. Deborah Knott is running for Judge while she is finding out a mystery. There is a lot of southern culture in the novel which is set in North Carolina. I like it.
Rebecca Brothers sent a comment recently about her charity to help people in Nashville, Tennessee get books. There was serious flooding in Nashville. It got into many of the schools. Rebecca is an english teacher. Her charity is A Dry Read: New Books For Nashville.
I remember her at the Book Bloggers Convention. She was very pleasant and mannerly. She made little individual lemon cakes with yellow bow ties for her charity and left them as a dessert for lunch with a card. Information about her charity can be found at http://www.rebeccabrothers.com/
