The Kiss Heard Round the World

A few years ago Charlotte’s Gallery L in Main Libray was voted as one of the best places to sneak a kiss in a local entertainment newspaper. I wonder how many memorable dates, kisses or first glances have happened in the welcoming spaces of the Public Library.

As is the season for thinking of love and kissing, Patricia Martin— scholar, researcher, idea-stirrer and generally brilliant RenGenster, has created a virtual kissing booth for the whole world to take part in. What a way to prepare and celebrate Valentine’s Day 08! Go on over and tell about THE kiss that changed your life, you can’t forget or left an impression that will never be erased. The top three kiss-that-rocked-the-world sharers will receive a copy of John Starke’s new witty and lovely book The Dictionary of Love.

The folks at Project For Public Space have long said that a public place where people are often found kissing or holding hands is perceived to be a welcome, safe and well-loved by most. I think virtual spaces can be just that, too. Do you?

Step on into the Kissing Booth.



  1. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before
    but after going through a few of the posts I realized it’s new to me.

    Regardless, I’m certainly happy I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back regularly!
