Some cool links for you from my week:
I’ve loved fairy tales for ages, so I listened to the recent MPR show about them (and their current popularity on television and in movies) with interest. Did you know that Little Red Riding Hood is about rape? I did not. Brain Pickings also has fairy tales on the brain, but they are talking about fairy tales with architecture. Unexpectedly cool.
- If you are on GoodReads, you can now follow my reading for the year. So far I have two books on my 2012 shelf.
- Speaking of social networks, Pinterest has been a topic of discussion at work as my colleagues have been talking about how they use this visual linkfest, so it seemed appropriate that I ran across this post yesterday: Pinterest for Librarians.
- Families might be interested in the Free First Saturday events at the Walker Art Center (coincidentally, it appears to be fairy tale themed) or Family Day at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts on Sunday.
- Those of you without kids (or with baby-sitters) might want to catch Zoo Animal and Fort Wilson Riot at Nick and Eddie on Friday (tonight). I caught both of those bands on New Year’s Eve, and it was great. Highly recommended. :)
