Betsy Bird is currently New York Public Library’s Youth Materials Collections Specialist. She has served on Newbery, written for Horn Book, and has done other lovely little things that she’d love to tell you about but that she’s sure you’d find more interesting to hear of in person. Her opinions are her own and do not reflect those of NYPL, SLJ, or any of the other acronyms you might be able to name. She has also written the picture book Giant Dance Party, illustrated by Brandon Dorman. You can follow Betsy on Twitter @FuseEight or email her at fusenumber8.
