Instructor/Presenter Bio

Robin Bradford, 2018 Library Journal Mover & Shaker, and 2016 RWA Cathie Linz Librarian of the Year, works for Timberland Regional Library District in Tumwater, Washington and started her career in book tyranny at the age of two, when she coerced her family into repeated readings of the relationship drama “The House that Jack Built”. Fast-forward a [redacted] number of years later, and she is still addicted to books and dedicated to helping others discover the love of reading. Along the way, she has hit almost all of the reading-related degrees (BA & MA in English, MS in Library Science, and a JD) but has found a permanent home in building reader-focused popular collections in public libraries. She has worked with authors to help get their titles into these collections, worked with librarians to push for equal treatment of genre fiction, and worked with readers so that they can find their favorite authors on their library’s shelves.
