Our USC School of Library and Information Science school library intern Lori Willis-Richards created this awesome book display in our Dorman library during November. We are going to sponsor a contest in which our students must guess the books. http://www.flickr.com//photos/c_nelson/sets/72157632042431512/show/ Want a taste?

This has been a reoccurring question lately in the library, and there is no shortage of dystopian novels to read.

A post was in my reader this afternoon, one so moving, I popped out to go leave a comment of support. Apparently the post has been pulled down.   Ever happened to you? How many of us have been on the other end of a Tweet, Facebook, or blog post as author and shared something, […]

(At the encouragement of my sweet friend JT, I post this.) And the headline read: Pornographic required reading in Knox Schools? Posted by The Knoxville Journal on March 9th, 2012 http://theknoxvillejournal.com/pornographic-required-reading-in-knox-schools/ If you haven’t read it, go ahead, though many can probably guess at the knee-jerk reaction the disgruntled parents and media are clamoring for.
