Author Reception at the State Library

Originally uploaded by crr29061.
The Mayor of Columbia, SC, Bob Coble, stopped by at a recent reception for author, Frank Baker. It was a wonderful event and approximately 60 people attended. Frank's book, "Coming Distractions: Questioning Movies," provides "young readers the tools they need to evaluate the barrage of media messages that reach them every day. Value assumptions, product placements, and cues to act are embedded in each media message. This fun series embraces media as entertaining and useful but also puts readers in a position of strength, as they learn a systematic way to question pop culture and to recognize how influential media messages are." Check out for more information on the book.
