Betsy Bird is currently Evanston Public Library’s Collection Development Manager. She has served on Newbery, written for Horn Book, and has done other lovely little things that she’d love to tell you about but that she’s sure you’d find more interesting to hear of in person. Her opinions are her own and do not reflect those of EPL, SLJ, or any of the other acronyms you might be able to name. Most recently she co-wrote Wild Things: Acts of Mischief in Children’s Literature will fellow bloggers Peter Sieruta and Julie Danielson.
