TAKE A CHANCE ON ART: 2010 Disaster Relief Raffle

Big white mouse and little brown mouse are tending a garden of flowers on the May pages in Susan L. Roth’s charming board book for preschoolers, My Love for You All Year Round (Dial, 2004). The original artwork for this spread, donated by the artist for the 2010 Texas Library Disaster Relief Raffle, is a multi-layered collage of colored and textured papers rich in color, shading, and detail.

The raffle will be held on Friday, April 16, during the second general session of the TLA Annual Conference in San Antonio. Tickets are available online (mail by Monday, April 9)and will be sold onsite at the spring conference: $5 each or 5 for $20.

Take a chance on art and improve the chances that your library association can help Texas libraries recover from natural disasters.

The Texas Sweethearts enjoyed lunch again at The Steeping Room here in Austin this past week. This seems to be a favorite!

We're also looking forward to school visits next week! There's nothing like getting out and talking with kids who love reading (and writing).

Have a great weekend!
