Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming Up on Vulpes Libris

As befitting the recent announcements of Academy Award nominations, we’ve gone a bit Hollywood this week. In addition to featuring a double bill of Neil Gaiman, there’s also dogs, boats and scriptwriters, though not all at once.

Monday finds Jackie admiring Best in Show: The Dog in Art from the Renaissance to Today.

The Tuesday Alternative will, as always, bring us more of Rosy’s wit and insight.

Wednesday Kari Maaren introduces us to Neil Gaiman’s Sandman.

and Thursday Sharon Robinson returns to Vulpes with a review of the graphic novel version of Neil Gaiman’s wonderfully disturbing Coraline.

On Friday, we have a real treat when Diana Birchall – story analyst Warner Brothers’ and author of Mrs. Darcy’s Dilemma – joins us all the way from Los Angeles with the true story of her extraordinary grandmother, Hollywood scriptwriter Onoto Watanna … and a little bit about herself.

Then Saturday Eve is going to talk about Alone on a Wide Wide Sea by Michael Morpurgo, a book about boat building and life building and surviving against the odds.
