E26: Lost and Found

In this episode, Hauser, Mauser, and McElroy discuss the book Lost & Found, by Shaun Tan.  A compilation of 3 different stories, one of which won an Academy Award for best animated short film in 2011, this book has fascinating art and heartfelt stories.  Part picture book, part art, part fiction, this book is flexible enough to fit into a library for any age and interest level. We discuss several issues with the book including the artwork, why we acquired it, and how to promote books like this one and others.

In the tech segment we discuss safeshare.tv, which enables users to create playlists and safelinks, for displaying youtube videos without ads and similar videos listed in the background.
