When family and friends ask me about my day, I sometimes wonder how I would explain the process of setting up an interview for someone else. The calls to and from the reporter, and the conversations with the interview subject about what can and cannot be said, and the logistics of setting up the place, space, and topic of the whole thing… the entire process is so much more than just “I set up an interview.”
Earlier this week the Houston Chronicle ran a Q&A with one of my teen librarians.
Teenagers, better known in the book world as young adults, are carving out their own sections — away from the children’s department — in the modern public library and are craving more than just books. Chronicle reporter Cynthia Leonor Garza sat down with Craig Bertuglia, a self-proclaimed “comic book geek” and teen librarian at the John P. McGovern-Stella Link branch library, to talk about what they’re reading, what’s popular with them in the online world and how today’s teen interests differ from those of previous generations.
So I point to this and say: “I did this!” I like my kudos, even if my name isn’t in the article itself. 🙂
