I am thrilled to announce that Jenny has kindly entrusted me with her mission of reviewing the best books for children, and I will be taking the reins at TwentybyJenny.com and on this blog.
As with most people who love children’s literature, I grew up, but never stopped reading children’s books, for they are the best kind of books, in my opinion. I graduated from Vanderbilt University with a B.A. in both English and Art History. I currently work as the Children’s Books buyer in Oz at the wonderful Lemuria Books in Jackson, Mississippi. For the past year-and-a-half, I have written a weekly newspaper column on children’s books.
I hope to help you discover the best books for you and your child, at any age.
Please join me as I embark on Chapter One at Twenty by Jenny.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that Clara Martin--gifted writer, reviewer and bookseller extraordinaire--will be taking over the reins at Twenty by Jenny.
As a bookseller at Lemuria Books in Jackson, Mississippi, Clara is passionate about books for children and young adults. Ever since my return to the publishing side, I have been seeking the right person to carry on the mission of Twenty by Jenny, and I believe that Clara is exactly the right person to keep you current in the best of what's being published for young people.
It has been a joy to build the community at Twenty by Jenny, and it is thrilling to have someone as talented as Clara to carry the torch.
Please help me welcome her.
With all my best,
