Links from around the web: 10-28-15

I haven’t done a links post in a few weeks OVER A MONTH, so let’s see if I remember how!

I would like to live in this perfect encapsulation of autumn melancholy please and thank you.

Someone linked to this poem somewhere, and I found liked it quite a lot. Sadly, I can’t remember who it was, or even what the context was.

HAMILTON! I have become fairly obsessed with this hiphop/r&b musical about an obscure Founding Father, which is not a thing I ever expected to say. But it’s so good! So many tears! The Schuyler sisters; Which Schuyler sister are you?; 21 steps to becoming obsessed with Hamilton; SO MANY TEARS; everything hurts; Rembert Browne does a great interview with Lin-Manuel Miranda

New Ann Leckie book coming in fall of 2017! Yes! Also, this is quite amusing.

Talking Piffle, a marvelous Tumblr dedicated to all things Lord Peter Wimsey, found Harriet’s wedding dress.

Kelly Jensen has a really powerful post up at To Write Love on Her Arms.

Indianapolis Public Library apparently started a lending library program (obviously modeled on the Little Free Libraries, but not affiliated–I felt like everyone was dancing around the term). The publicity for this hasn’t been great, since I barely heard about it, but the project itself is pretty cool.

ALL ABOUT ME TIME: I was quoted in an article about tweens & tween spaces in School Library Journal!

Also, I started a new project on Tumblr for people of faith who wear headcoverings some/all the time to share photos. I’m hoping to document it for myself, and also to get submissions from people of other religions and traditions. Here’s the About page.

My name is Maureen. I currently work as a library assistant in a public library in the Indianapolis area, and also just so happen to be a voracious reader. I frequently end up under a cat.
