Meet Pam Margolis of An Unconventional Librarian.
We asked Pam some questions, and here is what she has to say!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I have lived all over the world and have had many, many interesting jobs; but the one constant in my life has been reading and writing. And coffee. I currently have a 21 yr old and a 16 yr old and have mixed feelings about middle age. I collect dishes and linens and my extensive tea set is currently being used by the bookstore I work at for children’s tea parties, which I love to host.
What is your blog about?
I review books for children. I try to point out if there is an opportunity for the characters to be multicultural or of a different ethnic background or ability.
Is there a story behind your blog name?
I graduated from Drexel in 2009 with a master’s degree in Library Science. I found it difficult to find full time work as a children’s librarian and decided to start reviewing books online as a way to keep current with the industry.
Who or what inspires you?
I am inspired by children. I love to live life through their eyes. Gosh that sounds corny; but whatevs.
What is your favorite social network and why?
Twitter: it’s like a giant cocktail party!
What is your biggest claim to fame?
I filmed a grant writing training video for potential criminal justice grant applicants when I worked for Governor Bush.
When you were a little girl, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an actress like Carole Burnett.
What subject would you like to blog about but won’t?
Entertainment or beauty.
What is your favorite indulgence?
