Let's Get Laura!
"I am a librarian's daughter."
Well, I'm not, but that sentence caught my eye while researching something on the Internet. It turns out that mystery writer Laura Lippman made that proclamation recently -- loudly and proudly. And while she loves to sell books, she loves libraries and has many stories to tell about how they have influenced her.
Now she wants to hear your stories about your library. Laura is sponsoring an essay contest and the prize is Laura! She'll come to the library and do an author talk for free. Most authors, especially highly acclaimed popular authors charge big bucks.
Let's get Laura!
The deadline is September 30, 2010 and the details are at her homepage LauraLippman.com
