Michael Cart goes from Bulwer-Lytton to Ray Bradbury in one giant leap of a podcast!

In his latest podcast, Infopeople’s book guy Michael Cart reports on the 26th Annual Bulwer-Lytton Bad Fiction Writing Contest (It’s a dirty job, he says, but someone’s got to do it!). And then, to cleanse your reader’s palate, he reports on some of his favorite good writing, Ray Bradbury’s classic novel of summer and boyhood, Dandelion Wine.
For all of you Bradbury fans out there, Alliance Library System, a pioneer in the use of virtual worlds to promote librarianship and reading, will unveil a unique “walk-in” book during the grand opening of their newest Second Life project, Bradburyville. The Grand Opening is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 5th from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. SL time, and is part of The Big Read Initiative sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts. It is open to the public. You’ll need to install the Second Life software to see it all.
