Fantasy author Tamora Pierce spoke at the library recently, about her books (Bloodhound is out now!), her cats, her writing life, and even showed us her tattoos! She was a funny speaker who enjoyed answering any question the audience threw her way, and she stayed until late to autograph books and talk some more with fans. See photos on the Teen Flickr Photos page.
On May 1, Miss Lydia donated 12 inches of her hair to Wigs for Kids - a special organization that provides wigs for children who have lost their hair permanently, usually because of a disease or burns from a fire. On the same day, Diana who works in the Adult department downstairs, donated 14" of her hair to another organization that does the same thing Locks of Love! If you would ever like to donate yours - here are the addresses:
Wigs for Kids - must have at least 12 inches in a ponytail
