Last week was Community Cultural Harmony Week at K-State. If I had been on the ball, I would have posted something about it before instead of after the event. Obviously, I am a slacker who will do better next year. Feel free to remind me.
Why am I posting about something that happen a week ago? I subscribed to K-State's YouTube channel and noticed that someone kindly recorded and uploaded the lecture "Media Myths and Stereotypes about Native Americans" given by Dr. Leslie Hannah. Dr. Hannah is an Assistant Dean/Associate Professor of English in our awesome College of Technology & Aviation. For those of you new to K-State, they are just down the way a wee bit on I70 in Salina, Ks.
I really wanted to go to this, but sadly had a conflict. I know, you thought I was paid to act smart and be funny. They expect me to work too. It's wrong, but that's what happens when you don't negotiate your contract. I'm learning to deal with it :-) Now I have the opportunity to watch it and so do you. Check it out.
Book sales are awesome. Tables and tables of books that you've been meaning to read, or wanting to read, or never heard of until this moment but now must absolutely read. And they are cheap cheap cheap! Most can be had for less than a bottle of beer (or soda, for those of our readers who are not "of age".)
The Friends of K-State Libraries are holding their annual, no-holds barred book sale this weekend (see below for hours). Yes, we usually hold the book sale on Open House weekend. We're holding it a week early so that you don't have to spend any more time without those books that will bring love and meaning to your life. Oh, and we had a conflict with the Spring Scrimmage, which is also a fundraiser for the Friends.
