Poetry, Leaves, Candy and Michael Jackson!

Whew! What a weekend! Halloween night was a blast across from the library- giving out candy with Mr. Johnny. It was great to see so many library patrons! Though some of you guys were somewhat unrecognizable... :) :) :)

Saw This Is It on Friday night with my daughter. Wow! To have been able to see the finished concert. Michael Jackson was truly an amazing performer and Ally and I were reduced to tears several times realizing there would be no more of his music. Kenny Ortega pieced together a fabulous look at his behind the scenes work.

The leaves are falling and the poetry is rising! We had 24 teens to come to The Spilled Bean for Teen Poetry Happens @ The Bean on October 27! Some great poetry and art works were shared. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, December 1 @ - of course - The Bean. 3:30 pm.

Don't forget - If you are a high school teen from the county, think about a great name for our teen literary magazine. There will be a $20 gift card from Wal-Mart if you come up with a good one! You can submit your suggestions to Ms. Duncan or to me at the library by November 18.

Also, submit your art, poetry, and prose works to either The Bean, Ms. Duncan at ACHS, or yours truly for the teen lit magazine. Teens can submit all that they want, just be aware that you can only win once in one category. We will accept entries until March 1, 2010.

Have a great week!
