National Bookmobile Day


The American Library Association has declared today to be National Bookmobile Day. How many readers and collectors out there got their start with a bookmobile passing through town? Novelist and book artist Audrey Niffenegger is the honorary chair. She wrote a graphic novel last year called The Night Bookmobile, featuring a mysterious bookmobile that "contains every book she has ever read, from her childhood diary to college textbooks to Gravity's Rainbow, complete with bookmarks."

Another bookmobile to follow today--the gypsy wagon bookmobile belonging to Wandering Book Artists Peter and Donna Thomas.
