Between Page and Screen Reading

As some of you noticed, the library does not have a copy of Between Page and Screen. It seems they had an error in ordering their copy. So, for tomorrow, please take a look at the book’s website, http://www.betweenpageandscreen.com/ , and watch the video on its mainpage. ** You can print out a sample from the website and read a small piece to get a sense: http://betweenpageandscreen.com/pdfs/marker.pdf. (Thanks to Keili for pointing this out!)

I will provide my copy to the library for you to use next week. And, on Friday, you will see the author, Amaranth Borsuk, read from the work in person.

Apologies…. and bummer.
