Audio Clip: Book Carts, Yes, Book Carts on NPR
“It seems you can find a competition for anything.”
So begins NPR’s report on the 2009 Book Cart Drill Team Championships. While my first reaction to the above quote is, “That’s cold, Robert Siegel”, I must quickly overcome my indignation and realize that this event is fairly unfathomable to the uninitiated masses. I didn’t attend while at ALA – I think I missed out. They even interview MCs Mo Willems and Jon Scieszka for the piece.
Click the play button below to head over to the NPR site and listen. They also have video of the winning team.
