In Our Feeds: Art & Writing, BEA, books, books, and more books

IOF-big-300x300Every Friday, we share a handful of links that we found funny, provocative or just plain cool. We call it In Our Feeds. Have a great weekend!

What a week! Most of us here at OOM are heading out mid-afternoon to go help out at tonight’s big event: the 90th anniversary Scholastic Art & Writing Awards celebration at the one and only Carnegie Hall! Make sure you follow along as we honor some outstanding (and outstandingly creative) teens from across the country, whose art and writing have gone through multiple rounds of judging to come out on top. We can’t wait!

Once that’s over, though, we’ll be catching up on our reading. A lot sure did happen this week — it’s Book Expo America, otherwise known as BEA, which means thousands of “book people” have descended into our fair city, taking over the Javitz Center. (We’ll have some photos and roundups for you next week — trust me when I say it’s a sight not to be missed!) Of course, one of the hugest parts of BEA (in our humble opinion) was this moment: the release of Kazu Kibuishi’s new cover design for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

What else? Well, Lia sent me this link from Buzzfeed about what to do with all your books. (I can’t be the only one with that problem. Too many books, not enough space!) I can’t decide which one I like best!

Nadia had a similar idea when she sent me this link from BookRiot about creating your own little free libraries. I straight-up LOVE this idea. In my neighborhood, people often place freebies out on their front stoops — books, shoes, toys, dishes — and this is like a cooler version of that!

What are you all reading this weekend? Let us know in the comments.
