Just a few housekeeping issues, as Stephen Fry would say. If any of you happen to be mentioning the Twook Club on Twitter, I’d appreciate if you could try and slip in the #twookclub hashtag so that we can keep tabs on the conversation going back and forth – we’re hoping to use it Tuesday night if people are participating from afar. Don’t forget to tell your friends that they can follow the liveblog here too! All are welcome. Contributions are important, but if people just want to have an eye in on the action with a view to contributing next time, that’s fine too.
Finally, since each attendee has been asked to bring piece/quote/line/address from a book that touched them, we would encourage those on the liveblog to share similar passages with us.
Please email me at dublintwookclub [AT] gmail.com if you need any more information between now and Tuesday night.
I’ll see you all at the liveblog!
Ok, everyone? This just got serious. Even the paper of record says so! We am posterity. Many thanks to one of our own (@RosemaryMacCabe) for including us in her piece in today’s paper. It’s a great read on Social Meedja and the exciting things a happenin’ in the blogosphere both online and offline in Ireland right now. We at @DublinTwookClub are more than a little thrilled at the idea that some of you have just stumbled upon our wee club over your cornflakes this morning and would like to extend a welcome to you, and ask you to feel free to grab a copy of Maus (see below!) and be ready to partake in our online discussion of the book on 25th August. If you have any suggestions/questions/queries just drop us a comment below or email firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s a pleasure to have you here!
Right, it seems WordPress.com won’t allow us to embed the liveblog within its pages, so please, everyone, click the link below to join in the liveblog at CoverItLive.com.
