Copyright and You: Getting Your Students to Understand
Skype Session with Sharon Biggs Waller
We are so excited!! The author of A Mad Wicked Folly (see description below) has offered to Skype with us! We are in the process of getting a date and time. In the meantime, if you are interested in reading the book we will be getting copies via inter-library loan. Stay tuned for more details!
"Welcome to the world of the fabulously wealthy in London, 1909, where dresses and houses are overwhelmingly opulent, social class means everything, and women are taught to be nothing more than wives and mothers. Into this world comes seventeen-year-old Victoria Darling, who wants only to be an artist—a nearly impossible dream for a girl. After Vicky poses nude for her illicit art class, she is expelled from her French finishing school. Shamed and scandalized, her parents try to marry her off to the wealthy Edmund Carrick-Humphrey. But Vicky has other things on her mind: her clandestine application to the Royal College of Art; her participation in the suffragette movement; and her growing attraction to a working-class boy who may be her muse—or may be the love of her life. As the world of debutante balls, corsets, and high society obligations closes in around her, Vicky must figure out: just how much is she willing to sacrifice to pursue her dreams?" (Amazon.com)
Vintage Book Art
Seeing as we are discarding some of our outdated books, I decided to use them to create book art. Next month students will have the opportunity during our Unity Day Connections to create their own piece of art. Look for the pictures in our next newsletter!
This month our display is a little play on words- Shamrocked! We'll be highlighting some of our best music themed books. Come down to the library this month and write your favorite rock band or musician down on a shamrock to be part of our March book display
Writing Center Tea Party
The Writing Center will be hosting its annual Tea Party fundraiser on Wednesday, March 9th in the library. Patrons can purchase a plate of goodies and a cup of tea throughout the day. We hope you can join us!
