During #BlogJune, workers in galleries, libraries, and museums Down Under commit to writing daily blog posts about their work.
The blog, which has run intermittently for several years now, records the correspondence left at a librarian’s desk by the ghost which haunts her building.
We only ever see the ghost’s side of the conversation, but follow the progress of their relationship over the months and years, as the icy spirit – “I could not, in all honesty, be described as benign” – develops a certain affection for the mortal whom they haunt.
I love that Kyla invites us into a tender and wryly mannered fiction, invoking library magic to share the world of her imagination. Go check out the Library Ghost this #Blogjune.
