Deadline for library anthology coming up fast

The Nevada County Library is still seeking literary submissions for its forthcoming fundraising book “Open to all: What the library means to me” to be published by Comstock Bonanza Press later this year.

The submission deadline is May 15. The co-editors, nationally-known writers Molly Fisk and Steve Sanfield along with Nevada County Librarian Steve Fjeldsted, have received impressive literary pieces from talented writers near and far.

Many fine library-related poems, essays, and short stories (750 words or less) have been received but more are still desired.

So far contributors include David Mas Masumoto, Gerald Haslam, Peter Collier, and the one and only Ray Bradbury. “Fahrenheit 451,” Bradbury’s sci-fi classic was the focus of the inaugural “Nevada County Reads” project in 2005.

Bradbury has since granted permission for “Open to All” to publish a piece he wrote about his early days as an unknown writer, feeding dimes into the coin-operated typewriter at the UCLA Library.

A full description of the project is available at
