A dear and SASSY friend who works with the Arkansas Literacy Association was preparing my profile to post with a presentation I had recorded for their upcoming online conference when she asked me for my contact information, including my blog address. My blog address, I thought? I don’t have a– Ah. Yes. I saw what she did there. A not-so-subtle hint that I really should have a book recommendation blog. She was right. But don’t tell her that.

I've worked as a youth librarian at the Fayetteville Public Library in Fayetteville, Arkansas, for 13 years. I have been the selector for our juvenile nonfiction collection since I started and really enjoy talking to teachers and other librarians about the best in new juvenile nonfic. Things have gotten even more fun as I have taken on our library's juvenile fiction collection, as well! I also lead a preschool story time, write and direct plays for a small tween acting troupe called PlayAct, coordinate two literacy support programs with therapy dogs and shelter cats, lead a book discussion at an assisted living facility, coordinate after-school workshops, and write puppet shows and skits that my coworkers and I perform. In my previous life, I was an eighth grade language arts teacher. I still get to share my love of words with kids, but I don't have to deal with standardized testing. HUZZAH!
