OYAN Review – spring 2018

Recently I spoke with Greta Bergquist, Youth Services Consultant at the State Library. Here’s what she had to say for herself.

What’s your deal?

I love kids and libraries. And chocolate and dogs.

Tell me about a book you didn’t finish.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I tried to like the Lunar Chronicles because my teens did, but I just couldn’t get into them. A few of my YA favs are Angie Thomas, Nicola Yoon, Jason Reynolds, John Corey Whaley, Deborah Heiligman, Sharon Draper and Sharon Flake. I just started Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali.

What would I find in your fridge?

Butter, lemons, eggs, spinach. And a door full of condiments.

Are you more a hunter or gatherer?

I’d rather be a gatherer but I think I’m more of a hunter.

In the movie about your life, who would play you and what genre would it be?

A comedy starring Amy Poehler.
