Hey gang, it's Angie. And I wanted to help Killer Characters celebrate LIBRARIES. I loved spending time in my local library as a kid. It just felt so magical, being in a room, surrounded by stories, just waiting to be read.
My author, Lynn, tells the story of how she found her local library during a time when she really needed something to take her away from real life. First, as a kid, when childhood wasn't as perfect as it should have been. Then during middle school when she was finding her way. And finally, as an adult when she was going through breast cancer treatments.
In fact, the last library save gave her the push to start writing cozy mysteries since they were the stories that she relied on during treatment to give her hope and keep her mind on things other than medical treatments.
I can understand her story. I remember going into the Boise State Library when I was going to school and just sitting all day, reading the cookbooks that were available. Watching the Boise River flow past the campus was just an added benefit. And what's better than reading about yummy food?
So what about you? Are you a library fan? If so, go give a librarian a hug. Or a box of chocolates. Or just a smile and a thank you. The world's a better place because of our library system.
See you soon,
