  1. George, this looks awesome.
    I like how both the University of Missouri-Kansas City and the Johnson County Public Libraries are involved: true town and gown collaborations.
    I like how participants include professors, students, writers/artists, and community members.
    I like how events take place in libraries, at universities, in residence halls, and at the playhouse. Excellent.
    This is really an inspired set of events.
