In our feeds: YA art, the many hats of Dr. Seuss, blind dating with books, and more!
By Morgan on February 8th, 2013
Each Friday, we share a handful of links we found interesting, provocative, funny — or just plain cool. We call it In Our Feeds. Have a good (snowy, if you’re in the Northeast!) weekend!
Earlier today, Lia sent me this link right about the same time my sister tweeted it to me. Readers, I nearly had a heart attack over this one. Check it out — the Atlantic Wire featured work from an art exhibit happening in Los Angeles right now, where a bunch of female artists are showing the art of YA! “Young Adult” features original artwork representing some of my (and likely your!) favorite YA books and characters — like The Baby-sitters Club, Nancy Drew, Goosebumps, Harriet the Spy, and Sweet Valley High. I am so in love with so many of these. Definitely check it out! (And if you’re reading this, Gallery1988, can you please come to NYC?)
Speaking of art, here’s a neat link about fashion that Anne sent over…or, more specifically, hats. As in, the hats of Dr. Seuss! Did you know the beloved author had a secret, real-life hat collection? Well, now you do.
Meanwhile, if you’re hungry for a snack, Epicurious has written up an appetizing piece about the tempting foods from literature! Our resident baker, Kristen, sent that one over.
Switching gears, though, Megan sent me a link about a new study that shows when it comes to comprehension and ability to focus, there is no difference between reading off of an ereader or from a print book. Good to know! And speaking of ebooks, Nadia sent this little nugget, which I think is a brilliant idea: did you know you could go on a blind date with an ebook?
And finally, who watched the Super Bowl last week? We got a kick out of this piece, about second graders who learned grammar by correcting the tweets of various NFL players. What do you think about that — mean or genius?
Have a great weekend, readers!
