Mark Ramirez' article about Unshelved that initially appeared in the Seattle Times has now appeared in the News Sentinel of Fort Wayne, IN. We welcome new readers from all states, provinces, districts, municipalities, and duchies. Especially duchies. Please enjoy our (rapidly aging) primer.
Update: Apparently it also ran in the Newport News, VA Daily Press. Virginians also welcome.
In two weeks we're getting on an airplane to New Orleans, where we'll be exhibiting our wares at the American Library Association annual conference. There was some talk of moving the conference after Hurricane Katrina, but we're happy they decided to keep it there, and we're glad that New Orleans is willing to put us up. As our way of saying "Thank You" we are holding the first-ever auction of Unshelved art, all proceeds to benefit the New Orleans Public Library Foundation, which is fighting hard to rebuild their facilities and collection.
We're selling the original art for the
cover of Unshelved Volume One, which was the first and last book cover
Bill ever drew by hand (the rest were drawn right on the computer). Please visit the auction and pass the word. It's a good cause and a unique piece of library-oriented
P.S. If you get outbid you can still help rebuild the New Orleans Public Library by donating <a
