Local Book Notes: Bullies And Book Bans

Over the transom.

1. "Books about bullying, for youngsters and adults, are now so numerous they are a genre in themselves."

Slow train coming . . . here's a 1998 Steve Rhodes USA Weekend story about "bullyproofing" at a Colorado school.


2. Zine Scene.

My Life is an Open Book: DIY Autobiography runs through April 13 at the Regenstein Library.


3. One Book, One Chicago Expanding By Contracting.


4. A teachable moment.


After all . . .


5. The Team That Changed The Color Of College Basketball.


6. Former Arrested Development writer Maria Semple is scheduled to appear at a Printers Row event at Tribune Tower on April 4.

"Meet novelist and screenwriter Maria Semple, who will discuss her second novel, Where'd You Go, Bernadette, a satirical look at modern parenting, teen angst and technology. Semple, whose first book, This One is Mine, was set in Los Angeles, has set her new novel in her adopted city of Seattle. Semple will meet Printers Row members at a special reception at 6:30 p.m. Printers Row Members: Enter the promotional code "FreeTicket" and use your membership number to redeem your free member ticket."

For all others, it's $15 and a 7 p.m. start.


Semple's writing credits also include Beverly Hills, 90210; Mad About You; Saturday Night Live; Suddenly Susan and Ellen.

So she's batting about one-and-a-half out of six.


7. Amnesty deadline looming; see item No. 4.


Comments welcome.
