About Rebecca

About Rebecca
I am a children’s librarian with the Chicago Public Library. I have an MLIS from UW-Milwaukee and also hold a BA in history and a MA in public history. All of these combined make for one nerdy book-lover! When I'm not listening to kidlit on audiobook or adding new historical fiction titles to my Goodreads account, I like to snap photos and dabble in graphic design.
