John Green is such an inspiration! I’m glad he sees the magic in reading and shares/encourages everyone to seek the experience.

Hey! Banned Books Week is coming up starting this Sunday! This year has a focus on banned comics & graphic novels.
If you are looking for some resources to spread the word or to run events, you should head over to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund website where they have lots of stuff including two free downloadable posters you can print up to help promote BBW. I did the design above.
Oh yeah, and something else you could do for BBW is read Americus, by MK Reed and myself, which is all about book banning, censorship, and coming of age. 

Come fight the good fight with us at the JC store on Tuesday.

I hate when the media makes The Hunger Games look like a battle for love. Get your bullshit fantasies away. This is about murder, over powered government, and a girl trying to change the way things are. News flash not every girls fantasy is to find true love.

the irony here is that our media is doing exactly what the Capitol did in the books; downplaying the murder, focusing on the bullshit love story

That’s not irony, that’s just plain scary

Calling all Nerdfighters Librarians!

I was just wondering how many public libraries have nerdfighter clubs? I really want begin a nerdfighter club in one of the public libraries where I work, but as I’m a fairly new employee, and busy with school, I’m nervous to bring it up to my director. Any advice, tips, experiences, or opinions? Nerdfighters who frequent libraries! Would you regularly attend like a monthly Nerdfighter meeting at your local library? If so how old are you?

Help a library person out!
