We have a published author in our midst.

Melissa Crowder-Rhoden, BRCC adjunct English instructor, is published!  She has an essay in the newly published Looking for the Enemy: The Eternal Internal Gender Wars of Our Sisters (which Houff Library will own very soon).

Amazon says this about it: The Eternal Internal Gender Wars of Our Sisters is an edited collection of readings written by established and emerging male and female authors from the past and present that fleshes out and highlights what’s happening to girls and women across the world.  Looking for the Enemy: The Eternal Internal Gender Wars of Our Sisters presents authors from around the world, many telling cultural and regional stories that speak to their homelands. As the reader turns the pages and transition between chapters, he/she will quickly recognize that no matter how old, how far away, how nuanced each of the writings seem to be, the stories of women are commonly similar, their successes and failures repeating around a reflected essence of being human and being female.

CONGRATULATIONS Melissa!

Legos!  Remember losing yourself while building things with Legos?

Well, during our End of the Semester Stress Relieving Activities, we will have a whole tub of Legos on top of our Reference shelves (directly across from the Reference and Circulation Desks) that you can use to forget your troubles and build us something cool.  Do something fun for a few minutes and then get back to those books………
