The Rainbow Orchid Vol. 1 & 2 at the Springfield Library

Great thrill to finally see The Rainbow Orchid, by Garen Ewing, at the Springfield, Oregon Library. Here are Rita Eberle (left) and Youth Services Librarian, Carrie Schindele-Cupples (right), with the current two volumes in the Springfield collection. (Volume 3 will be added, when released.)

Rita wrote me later the same day, that both books were left as seen in this photo, and were both checked out the same day. I just checked the latest information on them, and both books are even checked out today. Just shows those eye catching dynamic covers, do grab peoples attention. Rita said, they plan to display them more often in the future, as the books have been checking out, to new found readers in the US.

Also good to note, all the paperbacks have a special clear covering, to protect them from the heavy wear and tear of library use. It is so well applied, you would never know it was there, but gives the cover a much thicker feel, without loosing any of the original colouring of the image.

If you live in the US, and like to see the books, you can visit the Springfield Library or ask your library for an interlibrary loan. (Better yet? Pick up some books of your own to enjoy. Link to The Rainbow Orchid Shop.) Thanks Rita and Carrie for the picture!

(If you are new to Rainbow Orchid, you should know one of the lead characters, silent film star Lily Lawrence, is a friend of Edna Purviance, and there is a lovely drawing of them together in Volume One. We are very pleased Edna is part of this very delightful book!)
