When the Fairbanks Library Book Club was looking for something to read for Asian/Pacific-American Heritage Month in May of 2008, one of our staff members recommended “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” by Lisa See.
Teen author Scott Westerfeld dropped by Maud Marks Branch Tuesday October 12th. He's doing a national tour promoting Behemoth, the 2nd book in his Leviathan series. While here he took advantage of the library's wifi access to get a little writing done! He also took time to pose with Children's librarian Charity James and Branch Librarian Sylvia Powers in front of the branch's display of his books. Thanks to Blue Willow Bookshop for bringing him by!
