And yet, Hermione does’t feel the need to add, “Yeah, and it’s a good thing I did, SINCE IT USUALLY ENDS UP SAVING ALL OF OUR LIVES.” 

We would’ve totally added that…

Seriously, if you don’t think the library isn’t saving your life, you have another thing coming.

The only regret I will have in dying is if it is not for love.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez (1927-2014), Love in the Time of Cholera 

nprbooks:

Latin American author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982, died Thursday. He was 87. Garcia Marquez, the master of a style known as magic realism, was and remains Latin America’s best-known writer.

His novels were filled with miraculous and enchanting events and characters; love and madness; wars, politics, dreams and death. And everything he had written, Garcia Marquez once said, he knew or heard before he was 8 years old.

Chilean novelist Ariel Dorfman says Marquez’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech was one of the author’s most important messages to the world.

"Garcia Marquez is speaking about all the people who are marginal to history, who have not had a voice," Dorfman says. "He gives a voice to all those who died. He gives a voice to all those who are not born yet. He gives a voice to Latin America."

It’s still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding.

chocolate is always good …

All of those things would be great…maybe add coffee to the list…yeah coffee would be awesome!

Understanding Poetry

Happy National Poetry Month! This comic was inspired by one of my favorite poems, "The New Poetry Handbook" by Mark Strand. This month on Incidental Comics, I’ll be exploring the world of poetry. A place, as Marianne Moore famously said, of  ”imaginary gardens with real toads in them.”

A good story should make you laugh, and a moment later break your heart.
