A Little Lost?

In view of tomorrow night's season finale of Lost, I'm wondering if any libraries out there are doing something to mark the occasion. Anyone hosting a viewing party? How about a Thursday night post-mortem discussion group of the sure-to-thrill (and vex) two-hour finale, and its impact on your patrons' theories of the show?

In addition or alternatively, how about putting together a display of books referred to by the series? I'm thinking of titles by Locke & Rousseau, the fictional Gary Troup's book Bad Twin (which references both the show and The Hanso Foundation -- hey, my library has this book on order!), Watership Down and Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret (all three of which have been read by Sawyer), and so on. You could pair it with your library's DVDs of the first season of the show, plus a bookmark featuring links to sites used in ABC's Alternate Reality Game show tie-in, and the show's official podcast.

    I did a book display several weeks ago using a page from TV Guide that showed the books and the Lost characters connection to them. It drew a lot of interest.
