Those of you who follow my wife Justine’s blog know that two months ago she was challenged by various no-goodnicks to learn to Lindy hop. This bizarre challenge came about because she’s writing a novel set in the 1930s, when Lindy hopping (an early form of swing dance) was all the rage. Justine proclaimed that she’d only do it if her fans raised $5,000 for the New York Public Library. Which they did!
So we took lessons.
Justine doesn’t like being video’d, so I had to take secret footage. Heh, heh.
Go here for the rest of the story, and to enjoy the dancing!

When recessions loom, libraries have the double whammy of having their funding cut at the same time as more people pour through their doors looking for help with job-hunting, learning new skills, and staying warm. So don’t forget to support the NYPL, or the library system of your choice.
