New Magazine at Butler Libraries


Here at the El Dorado campus we've started subscriptions this summer to two new magazines:

Mental Floss ("Where Knowledge Junkies Gt Their Fix"). For a take on Mental Floss, look at this list compiled to reveal how language studies could improve for both student and faculty alike: the 10 best books translated into Latin in recent years, Winnie Ille Pu: The Latin Versions of 10 Modern Stories.

The classics listed are children's books for the most part. Harrius Potter. Fernandus Taurus. Olivia, about whose translator it was said, "She gave Latin a life it hasn’t had in hundreds of years."

and

The Week full of the week's news & opinion, business, arts & life, cartoons, photos and videos (on the website).


Hope you enjoy them.

Celebrating the Tony Awards -- with Books

Drama Book Store won a Tony last night:
"At first I didn't think it was real. I thought it was a joke or something," says store co-owner Allen Hubby of his reaction to word of the Tony honor. "I'm really surprised to hear how much it means to people. It's flabbergasting and flattering. We're thrilled."


Note this comes from a fabulous resource for theater people: Backstage, The Actor's Resource.
