Welcome to the special feature, Your Barista Today Is: an entertaining AND educational feature designed to bring you information you can use and enjoyment that you need during the challenging times of the coronavirus pandemic. With everything turned on its head, why not work and play at the same time? Your barista today is a sparkly vampire and for your drink today we recommend: some pointy pop culture—the theme for this week’s menu.
One of my professors in library school once imparted the wise advice that if you really want to understand your students, you have to read what they read, citing Twilight as an example. It’s good advice—so this week’s post goes out to all the teachers, as well as the ordinary folk, trying to understand the allure of the pop culture phenomenon known as vampires. They run the gamut from the (relatively) tame to the disturbingly fierce, and you can find them all here. If you are ready to go gently into that good night, may I suggest the following menu:
|Recommended reading:||Twilight by Stephanie Meyer|
|Recommended viewing:||Van Helsing|
|Meal suggestion:||Red Velvet Cake|
|Drink suggestion:||Red Wine|
