It’s National Library Week! And to celebrate, we busted out the coffee and pastries at this week’s meeting of Meet Us On Main Street. In our weekly book chats, two staff members discuss what books, movies, apps, and articles are hot this week. Here’s backlit Stephanie talking about The Orphan Master’s Son.
So far the brackets of the Darien Library are not faring well in this tournament. Almost everybody picked The Yellow Birds (Billy Lynn took the day) and today, almost everybody had The Round House. Only one person is two-for-two! She is one of our children’s librarians. There’s really nothing children’s librarians can’t do.
Further update: now that The Orphan Master’s Son has beat Where’d You Go, Bernadette, the same children’s librarian is still in the lead. As for adult Readers’ Advisory staff? A cumulative one point. Obviously this contest is a sham and a farce.
