HEY BOOKLOVERS, HAVE YOU DISCOVERED LIT HUB?

UnknownBilled as the “go-to daily source for all the news, ideas, and richness of contemporary literary life,” Lit Hub has been live since the beginning of the month and is proving to be one of our favorite sites to visit for book news. The site focuses on literary fiction and nonfiction (no vampire series need apply!) with links, excerpts and original content curated by a partnership of over 70 small presses and publishers, authors, independent booksellers and journals. Updated daily with ‘quick hits’ from around the internet, LitHub will keep you well-informed of the latest literary news. You can thank us later! :-)


WHY’D THEY NAME HIM THAT??

With typical royal predilection for secrecy, Prince William & Duchess Kate haven’t revealed the due date for Prince or Princess #2, but royal watchers know it’s imminent…in fact, with our luck, the baby will be born sometime between my writing this sentence and its publication tomorrow morning. #MurphysLaw! Anyway, we’re adding the following resources, kindly excavated by our “Good Places To Start” Librarian, Sue Ottignon, that will help you answer the question “Why’d they name him/her Arthur Horribilius!?” As you’ll see, the royals can be a bit predictable when it comes to naming offspring!

William, Prince, grandson of Elizabeth II, Queen of Great Britain, 1982-…”

an impatient lifeTHAT NEW BOOK SMELL: NEW HOLDINGS AT FALVEY

Alan Wald of the International Socialist Review says when referring to An impatient life: a memoir that “[Daniel] Bensaïd crafts each chapter with a painter’s hand, stroke by stroke, offering us musings, vignettes, and reflections that are intricately argued, sometimes speculative, and always subtly insightful.”

 


QUOTE OF THE DAY
“There is no education like adversity.” – Endymion by Benjamin Disraeli


HAVE A GREAT DAY!

If you have ideas for inclusion in The 8:30 or to Library News in general, you’re invited to send them to joanne.quinn@villanova.edu.
