I wanted to share some of the publicity Camp Read-a-Rama has gotten through the University of South Carolina. The Daytimes link (which goes out to all 8 USC campuses) is below, and the School of Library and Information Sciences website also has pictures from the week: Click here to see more pictures from camp. Video clips are forthcoming after they finish editing them.
