I guest posted over at Sean’s blog “Sean’s Cyclebabble” today. The post is titled “bikes in books in brevity” where I briefly remark upon a few encounters with bikes in books. Referenced are Nancy Springer’s The Case of the Missing Marquess: An Enola Holmes Mystery, Crunch by Leslie Connor, and Alan Bradley’s Flavia de Luce novels.
Sean called just minutes ago and told me that the Library had just phoned him. Natalya won their “I Love the Library” essay contest! I’m not sure the age group exactly but we are thrilled. She gets a gift bag of swag of some sort Monday, her essay will be on-line and on display at a Barnes & Noble book fair (details forthcoming) and she (and family) are invited to join the Library in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade this Saturday! Very cool, huh?! More as details unfold, gift bags are picked-up, and sore feet and waving arms are soothed.
