Our LFL Gets a Cameo on Good Morning America

Megan Hanson, from the non-profit Little Free Library reached out to a number of LFL stewards in December, encouraging us to apply for a free book bundle. Stewards would also have a chance to have their LFL featured on Good Morning America.

I didn’t win the book bundle, but she contacted me again last week and said I was one of 150 LFL stewards to be selected for the February book club. Megan wrote:

I’m reaching out because a few months ago you entered to win books through LFL’s partnership with Good Morning America. While you were not selected in January, you have been selected to win two copies of Good Morning America’s February Book Club Pick! Here’s what you can expect next: February 1 is the proposed air date for the Good Morning America segment. They will announce their February Book Club pick and share a map of the 150 Little Free Libraries that received copies of the book–including yours! They will encourage viewers to visit those libraries to find a copy of the book. They may even feature photos of select little libraries on air.

A photo of our LFL appears in the segment! I feel like a twelve-year-old. It put such a bounce in my step to see our Little Free Library and Donna Pierre’s beautiful design featured on the morning TV show. It’s also an honor to place a copy of his book in our LFL.

Two copies of The Violin Conspiracy

Here is the link to the two-minute segment on Good Morning America, featuring Brendan Slocumb’s debut novel The Violin Conspiracy. Our LFL is pictured towards the end of the segment. Following is a blurb about his book:

Slocumb’s debut novel is a riveting page-turner about a Black classical musician’s desperate quest to recover his lost violin on the eve of the most prestigious musical competition in the world.

Doesn’t this sound like a great read? I received two copies of Slocumb’s book. I placed one in the library on the designated day, and after reading the second copy, I’ll place it in a different LFL in the community. I can’t wait to get started.

Thank you Little Free Library for all you do in the community. Mr. Slocumb, I wish you great success with your novel.

  1. Oh, fantastic to get a cameo and two books! Your LFL is utterly adorable and has such flair, just like everything else you do. Unfortunately, when I clicked on the link to the video, I couldn’t get through. An error message came up. I tried a couple of times.

  2. I couldn’t open the link either and even tried the FB version. I’m so happy for you. I wish I still had television but alas, only Utube right now. I haven’t seen GMA since early Nov. You know how much I love your LFL. It’s just the kind that would draw book lovers there. Congrats on the mention and the two books to share. I gather it was a good read?

  3. Wow, Alys! That’s very exciting. Your LFL is so beautiful, I’m sure lots of people noticed it. But I enjoy seeing the little book shelters wherever they are because they mean people read. And they all have different things in them, showing how many things there are to read. Neat!
