Party Banter Friday: 

In Which A Librarian Provides You With An Interesting Fact to Make You More Popular During Weekend Socializing

Boo! Happy Party Banter Friday. The best thing about Halloween being on a weekend this year is that, if you’re socially awkward, you can hit up all those costume parties you were too uncomfortable to RSVP to because you can wear a costume!

“Is that you, Kevin?”

” No, it’s [insert incredibly empowering literary character that you dressed up as, probably Katniss]. And I’ve got some interesting things to say.”

You’re in luck because we’ve got at least one interesting thing for you to say! And here it is:

What do the wildy popular novels Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell have in common?


They were all written in 30 days during National Novel Writing Month, a yearly writing project where writers seasoned and new attempt to write a novel during the month of November. And guess what, it starts tomorrow!!


This is a great segue into making plans to see the person you’re talking to again because the library has NaNoWriMo events aplenty. Check the out here and then spend the rest of the evening brainstorming about your idea for the next great novel. We’ll say we knew you when.
