Happy Monday, librarians! I trust you all had a loving Father's Day weekend.
We're busily wrapping up all the loose ends before ALA Annual. Until then, I've posted a few fun bits and bobs below. Enjoy!
- NPR's Fresh Air posted the 1/2 hour audio clip of their segment "Mantel Takes Up Betrayal, Beheadings In 'Bodies'." And Terry Gross asked the question that we've all wanted to ask Mantel,
"You wrote [...] about the French Revolution, and now you've written about Henry VIII, and there are several beheadings in these books. So excuse me for asking this, but if you had to be beheaded centuries ago, would you have preferred the guillotine, or the axe or sword customarily used in England?"
Mantel opted for—drumroll, please—the guillotine! Listen to the full interview now.
- Michael Kelley from Library Journal has called for submissions for Library Cat of the Month! The inaugural kitty, Emma from Lyme Public Library, is featured in the June 15th edition of Library Journal (p. 17) and she's a real beauty! Submission details here.
