Heather submitted a class note and photo that explained the somewhat delayed timing of her latest publication. “About five years ago, I signed a contract for my second book on librarianship for teens,” Heather wrote. “Shortly thereafter, we learned we were expecting our second child. Only one of the projects could be put on hold, so at long last, The Whole Library Handbook: Teen Services has been published by ALA Editions. This collection of essays and instructions on teen librarianship is a part of ALA’s long standing and well respected ‘Whole Library Handbook’ series. The project that could not be put on hold, Thora Violet, is now four-and-a-half years old, made of pure joy, and a great friend to her elder sister Julia, who is six. Also this spring, Paul and I bought our forever home, and are enjoying the sense of community here in Westmont, Illinois.” Thora Violet and her mom are pictured with mom’s new book.
