Meet Karen Yingling, Our New Middle Grade Fiction Chair

Karen2012A middle aged, middle
school librarian from the Midwest, I've been blogging since 2006 at Ms.
Yingling Reads
. My students are impressed that I've read every hardcover
fiction book in our school library, but it was really an evil plan to be
allowed to read to my heart's content and be able to tell people to stop
bugging me because I'm WORKING. I was on the Cybils' middle grade fiction panel
in 2011, the middle grade science fiction/fantasy panel in 2010, and review for
Young Adults Books Central. When I'm not reading, I'm coaching middle school
cross country and planning travel based on books. Prince Edward Island is my
next stop, since a phantom tollbooth has never been dropped into my living
