Here is our Friday eReader.This week he is joined by other people on the platform. It was a pleasant week at the Underground New York Public Library, with great new books that came in and some great interaction. Thank you for making this library a real experience!
The Pulitzer prizes were awarded this past Monday. Alas, there wasn’t one for fiction this year. It could be a result of rigorous discernment, but that’s not what it looks like after reading Pulitzer: The Leaked Fiction Memos, from The New Yorker. : ) In any case, I like this short news clip from an Op-Ed by Anne Patchett. I found it on Nathan Englander’s Tumblr.
The Brontë sisters as action figures? This commercial makes me want to play. Instead of playing though, this eleven year old boy in Bangladesh sells books and only makes $1.22 a day.
Blank Pages and Invisible Ink has sensual imagery and some fresh air in her poems. I liked this one of hers.
Come alive this weekend. Have a memorable one. : )
