Interview a PD: Mark Hand

Thanks to everyone who submitted questions via email for our first PD interview with country director Mark Hand!

The first half is filmed in the art studio; if you look through the window behind Mark you can see the back side of the library stacks! Apologies for any background noise, most of it is little kids reading and talking in the library (although some of it is the crazy bird who lives in the tree just outside the studio).

The second half is filmed in our living room in the Manna house, in front of our Spanish Brick Red wall (yum... I just love that color, although the video doesn't do it justice).

Thanks again and again to Bill Meier for donating the incredible video camera; we're SO excited to have it up and running! Stay tuned for a short film documenting the opening of the library, to be included in the monthly update.

And now, without further ado, the Mark Hand interview.

Happy Friday!

So currently, in Nashville, we are up in arms, because there is a schism over how to spell the conjunction you all; is it yall, y'all or is it ya'll? However, more importantly, excellent interview, Mark and Holly. On another note, could you also answer the question how much would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? And finally, more seriously, what is the most interesting food you have eaten since living in Ecuador?

Craig Smith said...

well, ya'll makes no sense because there is no a in you and you cannot separate the word all. you will notice, however, that in the interview they spelled it y'all, whereas it was my question and i prefer yall. (but im no southerner either...)

I think it was so sweet that Mark said love you to his mom. No one can ever replace you, Mark! Love, your surrogate Vandy mom, Linda
