I’ve got an exciting announcement to make today. TLT will be co-hosting, along with Patricia from Patricia’s Particularity and Rachelia from Bookish Comforts, a two month long Buffy the Vampire Slayer appreciation event this fall called The Sunnydale Project! The event will be taking place on all three blogs from September 1 to October 31st, 2012 and each of us will be providing something new, so be sure to follow Patricia and Rachelia if you aren’t already so you don’t miss out!
As a teen services librarian, and a fan, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has been an important part of both my personal life and my professional one. Buffy really captured the spirit of teenage angst. She was an inspiring female role model. And the tie-in novels really helped get teens into the library and reading. Today, the Buffy series continues on in comic book form. So although the series may be over for tv watchers, it is not over for readers.
We are SO excited for this event and thought we would get you excited too by giving you a little "sneak peek" of what's in store!
V reviews V discussions V giveaways V watch-a-longs V a scavenger hunt V fan fiction V trivia V lists V quotes V character sketches V guest posts V & more!
Some topics to look forward to:
Buffy Has My Heart, Always (What Buffy Means to Me)
Debating Buffy as a Feminist Icon
Librarians in the Buffyverse
High School Politics: The Popular vs. The Unpopular
Relationships in the Whedonverse

However, we also want YOU to be a part of our Buffy appreciation month in as many ways as possible! Right now there are two ways you can get involved: 1) we are asking for your submissions (or you can suggest a piece of fan fiction that isn’t yours) of fan fiction for a spotlight feature, and 2) if any of you are interested, we have some guest post spots open and you can also host/sponsor a contest! Check out the forms below for more information and to sign up.
Join us on September 1st to see a full schedule on each of our blogs for the month ahead.
