Well my newsletter has been put to bed and I must be soon as well!
Proofing and spellchecking will be done once I have a clearear head!
...today anyway! first day of leave since april. yay!
What has been happening in my world you ask?
Well... I gave my first lecture at a conference two and a half weeks ago (Youth Libraries Group National Conference at Lancaster University) it was titled 1"Egaging with Teens in Libraries" - I had over 60 people attend. I have since been invited up to somwehere in Yorkshire to run training as well (also on teen library work)
Even though it is my week off I am still going to work on Thursday afternoon as I have managed to organize a Japanese manga artist - Chie Kutsuwada (she has illustrated As you Like It for the Manga Shakespeare collection published by Selfmade Hero Press) to come in and run a drawing workshop on bishounen / shonen ai for my manga group.
The bad news is there will be no white rabbit sweets as they have been pulled from the shelves due to the chinese milk crisis, so I will be offering pocky which is fantastic but white rabbits are always popular but no one wants melamine poisoning Isuppose.
I am also moving this weekend, my address has the words "Gothic Cottages" in it which is just the coolest address ever!
I am tired... very tired but still have to finish off my latest Teen Librarian newsletter before I go to bed, at least I do not have to get up too early tomorrow!
