Sometimes I miss living in Brooklyn. If anyone went to the Brooklyn Book Festival last weekend, please let us know! Judith Viorst and Colson Whitehead, guys!

Jessamyn West (famous in these parts, trust me) has some tips for reporters about how to write a story about libraries. She takes puns and buns to task!

More book art. There are amazing cutouts of classic characters, from their own books!
