A Series of Fortunate Per Diems

You’ve probably heard there’s a new adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events set to hit Netflix on January 13th. The eight episode series starring Neil Patrick Harris as the nefarious Count Olaf was closely watched over by Daniel Handler, Lemony Snicket, himself.

Each time he visited the set, Netflix gave him a per diem to buy a meal. Apparently Handler was on a diet because he saved all those per diems and now he’s using that money to fund a poetry prize. Unpublished poets are invited to submit eight-ish pages of original poetry. The winning work will be printed in the inaugural publication from Per Diem Press. The poet will also receive $1000 and the opportunity to do a public reading with Handler.

Find details about the prize on Daniel Handler’s Facebook page and get your submissions in before February 28th.

To view the new Series of Unfortunate Events show next month, place a hold on one of our Roku Streaming Media Players to use the library Netflix account. While you’re at it, this might be a good time to re-read the books. Get started with The Bad Beginning.
