Hooray For Hollywood

This documentary has been years in the making, and I just got word they're premiering it at this year's ALA conference in Washington D.C. And, I won't be there. Oh well. The Hollywood Librarian is a look at the profession through the lens of Hollywood. Sometimes they get it right, and sometimes they get it oh-so-wrong.

I've been looking forward to seeing this film ever since I heard the director speak at a conference (many moons ago - I was still living in Michigan). The best part was that she brought a lot of film clips!

Check out the trailer, and take notice of the"Hysteric" Librarian For Freedom button. I have one. A former coworker (and former nun!) gave it to me when I announced I was leaving behind the marginally sane Midwest for the Land Of Burnt Out Hippies. That was three years ago folks and the Patriot Act is still with us.
