EveryLibrary and LibraryAware voting YES on libraries
When I was growing up, my parents always took me with them when they went to vote -- every single election; general, primary, special, local, national. They taught my brother and me that you always vote. You always show up. Moreover, they also taught us that when it came to ballot measures on budgets that fund libraries and education, you always vote YES. I am thrilled to share and to be a part of this partnership with Novelist and EveryLibrary to work with five libraries on their 2019 campaigns.

While Frankenstein’s influence has remained ever-present over the years, 2018 has seen a flurry of new histories, biographies, and retellings popping up on the literary scene, many of them published to coincide with this milestone anniversary.
