A Note from Bookmarks...

Our poster at Bookmarks!
So this weekend we kicked off our journey toward our official launch of the NC Lit Map by attending the BookMarks festival in Winston-Salem this past Saturday. We debuted our new poster (loving the new map!) as well as frisbees and bookmarks (of course!) detailing how to find us on the Web. Here are some interesting tidbits from the festival...

Kathelene and I made the trek to 7th and Trade Street to unload all of the Lit Map materials from my car.  (I honestly didn't believe we would have soooo much stuff until I had started gathering it together the day before.)  I was able to park right next to our table where we discovered we had a glamourous location directly in front of the port-o-potties.  Thank goodness we had such a pretty map to put up to block the view!  We set up our table with all the Lit Map swag and waited for the crowds.

The frisbees
And they came!  We met tons of people who were excited to hear about the Lit Map: parents with children, school and public librarians, teachers, and readers of all ages.  The frisbees really brought the children to our table.  One small boy took a look at the logo on the frisbee and said "Is that a compass rose?"  I was pleased to report that he had gotten it right.  And pleased that the chosen design elements had successfully connected with our audience.  Yay Lit Map!!

And thanks to the Book Diva for the shout-out in your blog.  It was a great festival!
