National Library Week Haikus

In preparation for National Library Week (April 12-18), Oxford University Press's publicity team recently asked its staff to writeNiko Pfund about their library experience for use in a promotional campaign. “Think quick and snappy, fun, happy, or tragic,” the note encouraged. Casper GrathwohlNiko Pfund (r.), academic group’s publisher, and Casper Grathwohl (l.), reference group’s publisher, had been in the middle of a “mean haiku emailing session” when the note from publicity arrived, so their 5-7-5ing quickly turned to the topic of libraries.
