YA chat

Author Maureen Johnson visiting metro libraries this week

So here’s an idea. The Metropolitan Library System should consider starting a YA for Adults book club. Because, you guys, I would totally be its No. 1 fan/cheering section/avid attendee. Extra points if said group could somehow involve drinking.

Genius idea, right? But I promise I’ll be humble when the librarians embrace the plan and want to throw me an appropriately quiet yet heartfelt “cool idea” parade.

Until the YA for Adults club (proposed group name: No Longer Shameful!), YA fans both adult and, you know, young adult, can get their fix when author Maureen Johnson visits a handful of metro libraries this week.

Johnson, whose titles include “13 Little Blue Envelopes” and “The Last Little Blue Envelope” (which is out this spring) kicks off the visits with the Bethany Library at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow. On Wednesday, Johnson has a full day: the Edmond Library at 9:30 a.m., Midwest City Library at 1:00 p.m. and The Village Library at 7 p.m. She ends her mini-metro tour at a 9:30 a.m. chat Thursday at the Capitol Hill Library.

To celebrate Johnson’s week here in OKC, the MLS is hosting a spine poetry contest. It’s just like it sounds: Create poetry using the spines of Johnson’s books and submit by Wednesday at noon. A special prize will be given to the top three poems.

Here’s mine: Fever at Sea creates a Devilish Bermudez Triangle, but Zombies!
