ATTENTION BUS-RIDING CITIZENS OF OUR NATION’S CAPITAL
DO NOT BE ALARMED by the picture of a scruffy-looking individual staring back at you from an advertising poster behind the driver’s seat. He is harmless.
I should know. I am that scruffy-looking individual.
I take every opportunity to sing the praises of the Center, so when they asked if I’d like to participate in this awareness campaign, I said, “How high?” I’m thrilled (and honored) to be among the authors chosen.
The ads will be on selected Metrobuses in Montgomery County, MD, Northern VA, and Northwest D.C. during the month of February.
A diorama, including me and the three other writers in this campaign, Patricia McArdle, Eugenia Kim, and Glen Finland, also will be in the Woodley Park/Zoo Metro station (subway station, for you out-of-towners).
Come back to the blog on Friday to learn about a fun and exciting contest involving mass transit, cameras, free books, and my face.
Late-breaking news: there already have been sightings!
