Talking Books Consultant,
Marketing the Talking Books Service in Central Kansas Library System’s 17 counties
Years with Talking Books:
Nicholas Sparks, Richard Paul Evans, Elizabeth Camden, David Rosenfelt
Have you ever faked reading a book?
Best library memory:
The teacher taking our class to the school library to select our own books.
First book you remember reading on your own or being read to you?
On Cherry Street (The Ginn basic readers. First Reader)
If you could have any famous person narrate any boos, who would it be, which book & why?
Tom Hanks narrating Dogtripping by David Rosenfelt. Since the book has some hilarious incidents in it, I think Tom would be the perfect person with his ability and talent to make people laugh!
What do you find most interesting/rewarding about working at Talking Books?
What I find most rewarding about working at Talking Books is experiencing firsthand the difference this service makes in our patrons’ lives. Many over the years have expressed what a lifesaver Talking Books is and how it has brought back the joy and happiness of reading again.
