A Tribute to Librarians & Libraries

Today I’m sharing a beautifully written post about the power of librarians and libraries. I hope you are all as inspired as I am reading this essay.

Hanh Bui guest post on Betsy Bird’s Fuse8 blog Libraries and Librarians Enrich Lives Far Beyond Books!

Recently I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some new authors and illustrators as we form a group with books releasing in 2023. It’s always fun to hear how other creatives were inspired. Hanh shared a story of the kindness of a teacher she had as a refugee. Her teacher encouraged her first English words. When I tell you, I had goosebumps listening to her, it’s not hyperbole. Every detail in Hanh’s words took me back to my beloved students in Chicago. I only hope my impact and legacy will be remembered like her teacher’s.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.
