Friends of the Library Quarterly Meeting – Guest Speaker Carolee Juergens

April 25, 2017 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM


About Carolee:

I have been reading and telling stories since I was a little girl (now don’t take that the wrong way).  I am the daughter of a soldier and a school teacher and because of that I have been in 42 of the 50 states, lived in 9 of them, and spent a year in Japan. I have a BS from Hardin-Simmons University and a MEd from Texas Women’s University.   As librarian for the last 30 years I have been lucky enough to have a job that I thought was just about heaven…I was surrounded by books.

Like the T-shirt says, “So many books…so little time” I found it hard to settle on just one book, so for my program I have compiled a “BOOK BAG.”  With the “BOOK BAG” I will suggest new books and new authors…I will offer a classic for you to remember or read for the first time…and I will include at least one children’s book (for all us grands to read to our favorite little people).  Knowing that I will be speaking to a diverse group of readers I search the book stores  for biographies, historical fiction, mysteries, romance, adventure and occasionally science fiction.  I will offer some of my favorite authors and introduce new authors and their first book.  It’s not necessary that you try to read all of the suggestions, but I know several  ladies that tell me that is exactly what they do.

There is a bookmark available with the titles from the “Book Bag” listed.
