In just a few hours, I'll be joining some of the readergirlz to chat with future literary gatekeepers of America (a.k.a library science students at UW) about book love. Sigh. And readergirlz - what on earth do we do? And why?
Here's some love from a readergirl that makes my heart flutter:
"I just wanted you guyz to know what a terrific job you all are doing. I was reading a Holly Black novel at school the other day, killing time before my next class, when another student came up to me and told me that Black is one of her favorite authors. We talked a while and I was surprised when she said she too knows about the Reader Girlz. I then started asking around and most of the girls there have heard of you guyz or they are members. I didn't realize that many people my age read let alone all belong to the same reading group. It was a neat feeling. Thank you."
Thanks to readergirlz, for giving me an opportunity to reach out to girls with books!
