"Slaughterhouse Five" by Kurt Vonnegut

The Lawrence Public Library is looking for submissions to the second series of Banned Books Trading Cards.  The cards were a big success last year, and received national attention.  The deadline for submissions is August 23.

Alison Meier documents the graves of artists in her blog post.  She writes:
As a last final statement, artists’ tombstones don’t disappoint. From the wildly eccentric to those that incorporate their own creations, the graves of artists are a fascinating reflection of their work. Even those tombstones that are simple, or sometimes even unmarked, often find a tribute from visitors who leave mementoes to these artists. I’ve spent much time visiting cemeteries during my travels, and spotted these artist memorials among the tombs.
