Front Window Display

We're having some amazing weather in D.C. The kind of weather that makes you want to wear tank tops and go chase the ice cream truck. I just got the "Get Blown Away by a Good Book" display up in the front window of the library and there isn't even a breeze as my silhouettes are getting blown away by the ends of their umbrellas. We of course put up some windy titles... who could forget, A Wind In The Door By Madelene L'Engle? Especially the Newbury book this year, When you Reach Me by Rebecca Stead mentioned L'Engle in her story. And The Wind In The Willows by Kenneth Grahame was there next to Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell So in honor of my out of place display, I'm posting some pictures of them on the blog. Maybe there's a wind blowing somewhere on the internet.

This guy originally had another arm that didn't quite work so I had to do some amputation.
Here's an interpretation of the north wind. He must feel out of place in all this sun.
