Montgolfiere Weekly is a pretty cool place to hang out on the web. It’s a group blog written by a chorus of truly excellent writers, moonlighting from their day jobs to comment on culture in all its various forms. There’s insights on everything from fashion to theatre to graphic novels to politics. It’s a place where writing matters, ideas matter, and above all, discussion matters.
Marnie Wellar is a contributor to the weekly magazine and her writing shows her deep kindness and thoughtfulness. Her speciality is books, and her ideal world has every right book in the hands of the right person. Her work in a hospital library helps with that goal, and lately she’s been turning her book-loving mentality to the community at large, too. She’s not one to just sit by when she sees that something could be done; instead, she takes (sometimes offbeat!) thoughts and does something about it. She’s a dreamer who makes dreams a reality.
Come and hear all about Marnie’s latest project, written up so well for Montgolfiere. She’ll have the right book in your hands in no time.
