There's currently a movement in sci-fi and fantasy to encourage readers to broaden their horizons to include more diverse books. But what to read? Well, there's Kindred, by Octavia Butler, but surely everyone knows abot Octavia Butler, right? Maybe everyone is tired of being told to read

"What if I told you we have per capita the same amount of cultural amenities here that you do in New York?" he told a New York-based journalist for the National Journal last fall. "Get over your, 'How do we even pronounce Des Moines?' and 'Where is it?' and 'Why should I even care about it?' Get over it, and come out here and visit."
Says one booster: "Get over your, 'How do we even pronounce Des Moines?' and 'Where is it?' and 'Why should I even care about it?'"

Finally. FINALLY.

(Good luck getting the commercial out of your head now.)
If there was one math question I was interested in as a kid, it was the mystifying puzzle of exactly how many times you'd have to lick a Tootsie Pop to get to the Tootsie Roll center. But while I w...

"Many of these are unworkable, or ill-advised, or just plain loony — but what I admire about them is that they are trying to rethink what it means to even have a homepage at all." 
Why do the homepages of so many news sites look the same? Former National Public Radio digital editor Melody Kramer came up with more than 60 different ways to rethink the homepage

"It must boggle the mind at traditional publishers that seemingly the entire Internet is talking about content that was created not by a seasoned reporter but a 'community growth manager.'”
Viral publishing is a lot like pregnancy: You can’t do it halfway. BuzzFeed is crushing traditional publishers.

"So I feel very strongly about these things and about the need to create space in which it is okay to talk about them. Because by the time my own children are old enough to begin to start grappling with these things, I would love for there to be a canon of literature there that they can turn to to see that they are not alone. That there are people that came before, and not only survived, but thrived, and hopefully went on to make the world a better place."

It is KILLING ME that I can't go to Portland to hear G. Willow Wilson speak at the ACRL 2015​.
G. Willow Wilson says it's been a blast creating a team of all-female Avengers for the new Marvel Universe coming in May. "We really got no directives besides 'Pick your team and go nuts,' " she says.

"The entire first-year class of cadets at West Point had read her 1985 novel, 'The Handmaid’s Tale,' for a literature course. The 75-year-old author agreed to speak to the assembled plebes (as first-year students at the military academy are called) after lunching with them on mac-and-cheese under the gothic arches of the campus’ vast, Hogwartsian mess hall."
