Member of the Month: Kristin Fowler

What made you want to be a librarian?

My friend's mother - Marianne Weill. She was a librarian at the Greenwich public library and I just loved her stories and the ARCs she would get to read!

What do you like doing outside of work?

I love movies and of course I love to read. I like non- fiction the best. Right now I'm reading Into the Forest by Rebecca Frankel. I'd say my favorite movie is Valley Girl with Nicholas Cage.

What is something that no one knows about you that you would like to share with YALSA Membership?

YALSA members may not know that I used to live on Martha's Vineyard with a group of my college friends. We would all share a house and work to have extra  money for school the following year.

I love being a member of YALSA because it keeps me informed about what trends are happening in the young adult world.
