Daily Thoughts 07/31/2013
This morning, I read some more of Anno Dracula: Johnny Lucardo by Kim Newman. The story has a lot of interesting ideas in it. Andy Warhol is shown in the vampire spirit, Orson Welles directs a version of Dracula, and history changes in various ways. The book has a definite edge to it with vampire blood as a kind of drug.
I checked the displays and the social media for the library. The book, I Wear the Black Hat Grappling With Villains (Real and Imagined) by Chuck Klosterman came in for me to read today. It is on the New York Times bestseller list.
I spent some time looking at the Washington Irving Book Awards which are presented by the Westchester Library Association for local authors. http://www.westchesterlibraryassociation.org/washington-irving-book-awards/
The computer lab is open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today.
I spent some time reading through Publishers Weekly. I also spent a little time working on author visits today.
