Hodgepodge 10/24/17

October 24, 2017

Been a while since we had one of these

The Moth: Hatpin Mary This is an audio file, and it’s NSFW (swearing) but it’s magnificent. Like a time capsule of New York and coming of age.

Company Uses Mushrooms to Grow Plastic Alternatives (JSTOR Daily). Nifty science!

Must-read Manga for Fall (BookRiot) Blame my library life

Diverse and Spooky Reads for Kids (Book Riot) and 13 Spooky YA Horror and Thriller Novels (Kirkus) Going to use these to freshen up the Halloween book displays

John Green and Turtles All the Way Down (Teen Librarian Toolbox) because I read the book, and it does an impressive job of showing a teen grappling with mental health issues, while still being a teen in a John Green Novel.

Dan Brown is pretty much what you’d expect (Omnivoracious)

Another from Teen Librarian Toolbox: Post-It Note Reviews of Elementary and Middle-Grade Books. Because there are good graphic novel suggestions and because I need to steal the Post-It Note speed review technique
