Visit Your Local Library
"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."
- Jorge Luis Borges
Last Saturday, we, the editors of The BOOM Project: Voices of a Generation
and six authors in the book joined the celebration of the 26th Anniversary of the Highlands-Shelby Park branch of the Louisville Public Library. After the readings, an interactive discussion between readers and attendees was punctuated by sandwiches, cookies and cake from an earlier party by Friends of the Library.
Did you know that last year, more people visited a library than visited Starbucks? Yes, it surprised me, too.
Thank you, Andrew Carnegie!
