It’s about that time again. School’s in session for most teens, and I’m heading back for my sophomore year at Grace College on August 31. So, I’ll be saying goodbye to GPL after this week — at least for the school year.
After I leave, GPL will keep the blog going, trying more stuff and carrying on my experiment. Hopefully it’ll be a team effort, but Kristi Helmkamp — who will be starting full-time work after I leave — will probably head things up.
Along with the blog, our “Read That!” teen book discussion group will return in the fall. Plus, we’ll begin new teen groups like the altered book club, so look out for that.
Two local colleges square off — Mac/PC style! My two older brothers went to Bethel. I go to Grace, but I still think this is brilliant.
Friday, a couple of GPL cohorts and I went to downtown Goshen with a bucket of sidewalk chalk. Our mission? Scrawl the name of this blog in as many places as possible before our lunch break ended.
We ended up hitting the concrete in three places — I’m hoping lots of First Friday revelers saw our handiwork.
Anyhow, big thanks to Better World Books, the Electric Brew, and Main Street Books for letting us vandalize their sidewalks!
