Work With Me

Curriculum Guides / Publisher Work / Sensitivity Reads

I love working with publishers and authors to create curriculum supports and reader’s guides. With my experience as a librarian who has facilitated and created programs for all ages, I am able to create any kind of material you might be interested in, from storytime resources to book discussion guides. I am also widely read within the field. I have reasonable rates, am flexible, and offer a quick turnaround as needed. I and am happy to discuss your specific needs and even brainstorm with you what might be most useful for you and your audience. Here are some samples of my previous work:

I am also open to doing sensitivity reads on material relating to fatness and body image or just general feedback on how to make a manuscript more appealing to a youth audience. Rates are negotiable. Contact me to discuss what we can work on together!

Conferences & Workshops

I’ve been presenting at library and literacy conferences professionally since 2001. Sharing at conferences is one of my greatest pleasures and I love learning and networking this way. Here you’ll find links to some of my past presentations and, when applicable, links to resources I created for them. If you are looking for resources for a presentation I did before 2015, please contact me directly.

If you’re interested in more information about any of these programs, in collaborating with me, or in having me present in any capacity, please contact me. I am comfortable presenting, moderating, or keynoting about a wide variety of topics regarding youth services in a public library setting but have special interest in spotlighting diverse titles for collection development and helping white people examine and work on dismantling their privilege in library settings. (I have reasonable rates, am willing to present virtually, and can create something tailored to your needs.)
