Today I have a special guest here on Carly Reads … I’ll allow her to share a little bit of information about herself with you, but allow me to introduce you to Colleen!
Hi! My name is Colleen. I have always loved to read! I am 25 years old and currently finishing up my last semester the University at Buffalo, working towards my master’s degree in Library Science. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Nazareth (home to the TBF – yay!). Because of my love of books, I got my first job as a page at the Webster Public Library shelving books when I was 15… and have been there ever since! I’m still at the same library – but working as a librarian assistant now. For my final semester of grad school, I am working on a special project with the Teen Book Festival (as an intern of sorts). In addition to working alongside TBF-founder and committee chair Stephanie Squicciarini on several TBF-related projects and events, I am also attempting to read my way through all of the authors coming to the festival this year (a big task, I know… but I’m up to it!). Carly, my fellow WPL employee and Naz student, has been kind enough to let me be a guest blogger on Carly Reads as part of my project. I’m new to writing reviews… so please bear with me!
Hope to see you all at the TBF!
So readers, come back again tomorrow for Colleen’s first book review.
