Hi! I’m Rebecca Vnuk, author of 3 Reader’s Advisory nonfiction titles: Read On…Women’s Fiction; Women’s Fiction Authors: A Research Guide; Women’s Fiction: A Guide to Popular Reading Interests (co-authored by Nanette Donohue); as well as the best-selling The Weeding Handbook: A Shelf-by-Shelf Guide (ALA Editions, 2015). (Whoo-hoo, I’m a best seller in library-land, at least!)
I am the Executive Director of LibraryReads. You can learn more about my career path on LinkedIn. I was named LJ’s Fiction Reviewer of the Year in 2008, and I am also the 2010 winner of the Public Library Association’s Allie Beth Martin award, for my “unwavering dedication to books of any cover.” In 2010 I was named a Library Journal “Mover and Shaker”.
Want to listen to me? I’ve had the great fortune of appearing on the Circulating Ideas librarian podcast several times.
