57th Most Literate City... Hmph!*

It's a good PR week for our respective institutions.

Susan Patron, a librarian at the Los Angeles Public Library, is awarded the 2007 Newbery Medal for The Higher Power of Lucky

USC sociologist Barry Glassner is interviewed at Salon about his new book, The Gospel of Food.

We may not know all the best people, but we can at least say we work with them.
* It's a fact.

Patron was on the Today Show this morning, and she was all cute and modest. Ann Curry was totally gushing over the book.
