At the Libraries: Cook Like an Author

Each week Miss Kathleen provides links to a variety of stories about libraries, authors, and books. If there’s something noteworthy going on in your local library, leave us a comment!

As if there weren’t enough awesome benefits to being J.K. Rowling’s kids, here’s another: this awesome Hogwarts-inspired tree house she’s building!
Writers and their recipes — yes, please! If anyone cooks these, please let us all know! And thank goodness Hunter S. Thompson isn’t on this list.
Is your library card part of the very awesome library card table?

Yikes and yikes! Looks like we’ve got another Jayson Blair on our hands. Jonah Lehrer’s book is actually being removed from bookstores because of it! I just checked Amazon and it wasn’t there. Are libraries going to pull it? Should they?
Confessions of an over-blurber! I know he’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I like A.J. Jacobs. And blurbs!
Guys, I think we’ve identified the next trend: magazine art! We saw some last week; here is another great example.

Okay, so we’ve seen book art, now we have magazine art, what could possibly be next? How about… word art!
I have not read/seen Dune, but I was tipped by my slightly nerdier husband (sorry, babe) that this would be a crowd-pleaser: Goodnight Dune.
More art! Daniel Edlin creates portraits of artists in the pages of their own books. It’s very awesome!

Thanks for reading and, as always, holler at me if you have great things to share!
