Librarians tend to have their ears to the streets and can measure the pulse of their readers and the books that they like.
In Jennifer Brown’s opinions, librarians are the lifeline to what she does as a young adult author.
So when the 1990 graduate of Lee’s Summit High School reached out to Amy Taylor, a library media specialist at Lee’s Summit West, the genesis was born for a unique partnership that began with a launch party in May shortly after the release of Brown’s latest book “Thousand Words.”
To culminate the partnership, the nationally-acclaimed and award-winning author was at The Stanley in downtown Lee’s Summit, 25 S.E. Third Street, Aug. 24 for a special reading, signing and luncheon hosted by librarians from each of the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District’s high schools.
