(2.24) Last winter two dozen readers created entries for “Dear Diorama,” an exhibit of 3-D book reports that was organized by Providence Community Library and Not About The Buildings. Local artists, crafters, and hobbyist bookworms showed off scenes from some of their favorite books, from Watership Down and Alice In Wonderland to The Flame Throwers and We Have Always Lived In The Castle. (The Book of Genesis and Dune were there, too!) The event was a huge success and later this month it returns, minus one pesky comma* but with the addition of host Reba Mitchell and judges Walker Mettling, Delia Kovac, and CJ Jimenez.
The competition is open to all ages and skill levels, so don’t be shy! There are prizes and blue ribbons to go around, and also refreshments. You love refreshments!

*Whatever you do, never ever create an event whose title ends with a comma. For your own sake. It’s a proofreading nightmare.
