And a very Happy National Library Week to you!
The theme of this year’s American Library Association celebration is Lives change @ your library. So that’s what Team LRK is celebrating as well. As you must know by now, I love libraries.
So this spring, where I am also celebrating my own great good fortune in twenty years of Mary Russell, I’m giving away some of her books.
1. To libraries. If you know a library that sponsors book clubs, and can make use of fifteen copies of the same Russell title, send us the library’s name. We’ll do a drawing every week between now and the publication date for the Twentieth Anniversary Edition of The Beekeeper’s Apprentice, May 27. Show your library you love them, and let me send them some books.
Send your library nomination, to:
email@example.com with the subject line: Libraries.
2. To Russell’s readers. Do you agree, that “Lives change @ your library”? Let’s make that our theme. I have a complete set of Russell & Holmes hardbacks PLUS the new hardback 20th Anniversary Beekeeper’s Apprentice for the winning essay, poem, video, painting or what-have-you, on the topic:
“How The Beekeeper’s Apprentice Changed my Life.”
Although if that’s a bit too dramatic, you can make it:
“When I first met Mary Russell, she…”
Send your essay/poem/video/needlework/skywriting project etc. to:
firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Beekeeper.
