Join us this Tuesday evening, Nov. 12, at 6:30 for discussion of creating fanworks.
At their most basic, fanworks allow the consumer to continue to live in and enjoy the universe of a work that gives them pleasure. It may continue existing character/plot lines; it may develop interstitial moments within existing themes and stories; it may take characters/settings and go off in new directions to explore them better; or it may combine characters from more than one ‘verse.
We’ll talk about the most common genres of fanfiction, where they’re published, how to create your own, and the social conventions of the fanfiction realm.
Some of us began our fanfics this summer, working on a group project based upon the 1950 Disney movie “Cinderella.” It’s not too late to join in, if you’d like to play along. Bit it’s also fine if you want to just come and listen, to find out what this new (very old) form of fiction that’s increasingly in the press actually is about.
Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms. — Angela Carter

Join us at the Library on Wednesday, November 13 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am for this live video teleconference in honor of Veterans’ Day. This program is free and open to the public.
What is it like to be in the military? What is it like to fight in combat and to return home from war? What does it mean to have served your nation in its armed forces? Why is it important to continue to serve our nation even after returning from war? As we celebrate Veterans’ Day this year and we remember those who have fought and died for our country’s freedoms, take your study of the history of America in war to the veterans who fought in them. Ask these questions and more as you interact with who have served our nation in times of conflict and times of peace. Our focus in this program will not be exploring the historic details of a specific war or battle in that war, but it will be to provide students the rare and important opportunity to speak directly with those who have served our country in its armed forces and served as veterans serving other returning veterans and learn first hand what that means.

Writing Club is Back- Each Tuesday from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Join Seldovia writers tonight at the library. It’s NanoWriMo month and we’re going to try again to write a book in a month. Come on by and we’ll introduce you to the NanoWriMo website, help you get enrolled, and encourage you to write, write, write, and write some more. You do not have to participate in NanoWriMo. Just bring a favorite pen, or your typing fingers and spend a couple of hours writing to your hearts content. Writing Club is an all ages event and everyone is welcome. Look for weekly Write Club Events on this website. Next week we’ll be having a fun lesson on fan fiction. Click on the picture below to learn more about National Novel Writing Month.

We are pleased to welcome our new OWL IT Aide, Cindy Mom. Cindy came to Seldovia this summer, and after visiting Seldovia, she decided it was a great place to stay. She has been busy contributing to the community since arriving, and spent some time working with SVT’s prevention program. Cindy also has extensive experience as a volunteer at other organizations, including volunteer time with land conservancies, and time as both President and Vice-President of the Petoskey Regional Audobon Society. She has led many field trips, done extensive public speaking, and has a history of volunteerism and enthusiasm that makes her a great fit for our library. We are really looking forward to working with Cindy. If you have any questions about OWL, or if you have a request for a program that Cindy can bring to the library through OWL, please come on it to the library and ask, or leave a comment here on our site.
