Book island

  1. 1. Book Island… Pages Turned http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Book%20Island/128/128/36 When I was transported to Pulitzer Square, I knew I was home. I didn’t even have to click my heels.
  2. 2. Poetry Surfs! No one else is on Book Island now. But already I cannot wait to come back—Thursday afternoon poetry surfs: Hang Ten!
  3. 3. In addition to cool public spaces, Book Island has many nooks and crannies where one can sit and read. Here is a British Library kind of reading room. Excuse me while I read a history of the Anglican church.
  4. 4. After some time curled up with a good boook, I’m ready for some Improv! Oh well, none tonight: I’ll have to check it out tomorrow.
  5. 5. An Open Book • At Book Island I saw placards announcing Shakespeare reading groups, and writers’ workshops, and poetry readings, but what I didn’t see were people. I am curious who attends these events and whether there is an active community here. If so, then I’ve found a safe space for my creative writing students next semester to read their poetry and listen to other beginning poets do the same. Honestly, I didn’t think I’d have much use of SL for the classroom, but it didn’t occur to me that there would be virtual readings and improvs; now I am excited to explore the island.
