Crows flap, swoop, and pulse
typing on the blue sky screen
the story of fall.
Lorie Ann Grover, 2008
It's actually been a year now. A year since I was in isolation for five days because I was radioactive. Of course that followed the full removal of my thyroid. Both sides were removed as a precaution. The cancer was in the lobe they didn't suspect. I'm so thankful my surgeon was capable and cautious.
I'm giving a shout out to the AMAZING Dawn Rutherford, Librarian Extraordinaire. I mean just note her hair and glasses. And I don't even have a photo of her hip motorcycle boots.
Dawn had Dia Calhoun and I speak this past week about rgz to a room full of YALSA librarians for college credit. They got it. We didn't. :~) Very cool. Then we joined a panel with Colleen Mondor of GuysLitWire, the awesome brother site to rgz.
Here's Colleen. This captures her much!
We were moderated exceedingly well by postergirl, librarian Jackie Parker .
So, she's not actually moderating here. But you get the gist of life with Jackie around. (Pictured: postergirl Miss Erin, my daughters Em and El, and Jackie.) It kind of looks like a panel, right?)
We had a great time discussing our sites, teen girls, and teen boys.
It was a great event at Sno-Isle Library. Thanks so much to all the fab librarians we met! And I'll try not to forget my camera next time. Grrr.
