This week's Dog Ears feature an expounding on free speech, as well as a free story from Stephenie Meyer:
- Like Neil Gaiman and your first ammendment rights? Then you should tune in (does that term even apply, anymore?) for "An Evening with Neil Gaiman," from 6-8pm on April 12th. The live internet event is hosted by the American Library Association to kick off National Library Week.
- The Huffington Post explores "The 11 Most Surprising Banned Books" in a shameless attempt to draw those people who might be interested in the above event.
- Here's Vanity Fair's "Bookopticon," which explores the "tangled, incestuous web of the publishing world."
- Kristy Logan of The Millions explores several retellings of Snow White in "The Problem with Fairy Tales," with an interesting take on several of them.
- Check out the literary prescriptions of Jezebel in "Books to Cure What Ails You: A Guide for the Neurotic Nerd." Take two pages and call me in the morning...
- There is a God! For those of you waiting with bated breath for the newest in the Twilight saga, your anticipation is soon to be temporarily satisfied by the release of a free short story on June 5th, "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner."
