The Help Desk is taking Memorial Day weekend off

Our advice columnist, Cienna Madrid, is taking the weekend off to celebrate Memorial Day and do a little traveling. Hopefully, you're doing the same.

If you have any questions of literary etiquette — from the proper treatment of rude library patrons to what to do about loved ones whose lips move when they read — please drop Cienna a line at And of course you can always read the archives of the column right here on the site.
