As the Winchesters know: Kansas rocks in more ways than one.
Beautiful cover (it reminds us a little of Nobody’s Prize, in a good way!) and we love the idea of exploring new mythologies in young adult literature! What do you think of Exquisite Captive's cover reveal?
You guys, libraries are giving me gifs of Martin Freeman and I’m so happy I could cry and this is who you want to take funding from??
THEY ARE DOING REALLY IMPORTANT WORK, OBVIOUSLY.
(Okay, I am being facetious, but seriously, I love seeing libraries do outreach in new and engaging ways. Libraries are such vital parts of local communities, and it makes my heart so happy to watch as they grow along with the times to fill the needs of their patrons.)
Of course we will give you Martin Freeman gifs. We love Tumblr, we love authors, we love anyone on Tumblr who wants to talk to us.
Ultimately, libraries are about community, wherever you build it or find it. And community isn’t just the people who live down the street from the building we call a library, it’s about people talking and gathering wherever they meet.
And….we will happily meet our community, wherever they go and wherever they gather. Thank you, Kiersten, for loving libraries. And Martin Freeman, because it gave us an excuse to post gifs today. :)
