Byte-Size Blair – May 19

We’re back with Byte-Size Blair, our weekly wrap-up of all things social media. If you’re not already following us on FacebookTwitterTumblr, or Pinterest, give us a look.

1. Bearwallow author in Brevity: Jeremy B. Jones has a beautiful essay about the ties between writing and our senses–particularly smell–in this month’s Brevity.

2. Blair in the Community: The John F. Blair staff volunteered last Friday at the Forsyth County Friends of the Central Library Book Sale. We helped unpack and organize thousands of titles as part of our efforts to give back to Winston-Salem.

3. Beardfellows: Do you know what it means to rire dans sa barbe? We tweeted about it with Anna and Julia Hider, authors of our upcoming Badass Civil War Beards.

4. Pinworthy: We pinned this great image that gives new meaning to the idea of “reading in bed.”

5. More Awards!: In other tweets, we congratulated Hub City author Angela Kelly for her SIBA win and NewSouth author Anna Olswanger for her honor.

And as always, let’s close this update out with a great picture of a beloved Blair staffer’s fuzzy friend. This week it’s Carmen, a dog who wears many hats…like this one.
