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

5394928283_4fa0935883 As spring approaches and love is in the air, the Book Foxes consider love in a variety of forms. From the traditional to the feminist, including – of course – a love of books, the Book Foxes have got it covered.

Monday: Jackie presents a Valentine’s themed post.

Wednesday: Lisa considers early 20th century feminism and contraception in J. David Simons’s The Liberation of Celia Kahn.

Thursday: RosyB chats to Theresa Breslin, Carnegie winning children’s writer and one of the leaders of the protest to the Scottish Parliament about cuts to libraries. She will be telling us why libraries matter and why particularly so to children.

Friday: Hilary is lured through the intriguing garden gate on the cover of Kate Morton’s The House At Riverton.

    I like that poster. It’s funny, historical & gets the point across in an amusing manner.
