I am caught by Schaumburg Library teens

October 7, 2009



A few weeks ago the Schaumburg Township District Library’s Teen Corps captured an author in the wild.

I was that author.

They tried to keep me penned up in their library, but I caused too many problems. Tackling the patrons, biting the teens, eating the books—apparently, these are all frowned upon. When I was good, they let me wear my Happy Jacket. When I was bad, they put me in the Trouble Bucket.

Stern discipline for a simple beast.

Finally they realized I was too much trouble, and they set me free. It’s all chronicled in the above video.

Special thanks to Teen Coordinator Amy Alessio for inviting me, and to Dan Schnepf for his editing magic!
