Jenny loves paper and ink books. She loves to find them, take care of them, and read them. Her mother's pride and joy was that Jenny taught herself to read at age four. As a child, Jenny visited the library weekly and read every one in the large stack she brought home.
When Jenny won Best Journalism Student in the eighth grade, she figured this meant she was going to be a journalist like her dad. She started college majoring in journalism, but later became a Human Development major and that's what she ended up doing, developing humans. As a stay-at-home and homeschooling mom for twenty years, if she did one thing well, she read to her children. A lot. Jenny taught literature and writing to other students as well during this time. One of her highlights was helping junior high students fall in love with Shakespeare when she helped them perform Twelfth Night.
With her sons both in college and her daughter attending the local high school, Jenny found herself in a major life transition. It was at that time that a local bookstore came up for sale. In January 2017, Jenny officially became a brick-n-mortar bookstore owner. It is her joy to interact with stories, both the ones on the shelf and in her customer's lives, every day. Intersecting the two is some of the most fulfilling work she has ever done.
