Jenny is the Assistant Director at Eckhart Public Library. About her preferences she says, “A nerd who just wants everybody to end up happily ever after. I read and watch widely, but prefer romance novels; Star Wars-esque space opera; British humor; fluffy mysteries; books written for teens; adventure stories like Harry Potter, Dactyl Hill Squad, and Rick Riordan Presents; and almost anything they show on Masterpiece Theater on PBS. I love reading #OwnVoices books. #WeNeedDiverseBooks”
