Getting Ready for the Big Read

I/We am/are really excited about this year's Big Read at the library.  It's a fantasy novel, A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin.  Right up our alley.

So when our publicity person came downstairs on Monday in a panic because the production guy needed pictures 'tomorrow!' and there was nothing to be had, the women of the household jumped on our collective horses to ride to the rescue.  After all, she is a damsel and she was in distress.

Pulling items off shelves and whipping out some dragon eggs and a quick knight's tunic Monday evening, we loaded up and went to the library Tuesday morning to be there in time for the photographer. 

This is the display which we set up...


Except for the books, it's all ours!  The joy of being 'geeky'!  

And better yet, Lady K put on her dragon tail and the photographer took some pictures of her.  Since he sent Texter a release form, we are assuming/hoping she is going to be included in the ad for the library.  This would be the second or third time she has been in a library promotion.

So the next couple of months will be spent making items for decorations and workshops for the Big Read.  We are in our element!
