Deborah was the youngest library card carrier in Beaufort, SC, at 6 yrs. old in 1956; never wanted anything except books for birthdays and Christmas; raided the “little rich girl’s trash can” for her tossed out books and children’s magazines in her Nancy Drew sleuthing days for new reading material; lived in libraries during the summer; and married her first husband on the basis that he was a lawyer and read A LOT. She grew up to be a PR and marketing professional for authors and their books working with a virtual book touring company called: Pump Up Your Book. Armed with degrees and experiences in fine arts/art history/museum studies and English literature, she makes it her business to see that authors get the kid glove treatment. Oh, yes…and her parents…their famous last words …”She always has her nose in a book.” Her children and grandchildren do, too! My other blog is A Bookish Libraria. I’m Deborah/The Bookish Dame.
