Meet the 2020 Organizers: Joelle Bagshaw, Middle Grade Fiction Chair

When she was 4-years-old Joella thought all stories about Cinderella were really about Cin-Joella and were telling her that she would one day grow up to become a princess and live happily ever after. Ever since Joella has loved to read and tends to find that Children’s Literature has the perfect blend of dreams and literary merit. Joella has worked in libraries for the past 18 years and is currently the Children’s Services Manager at the Provo City (Utah) Library. She posts book reviews on Mondays at the Provo Library Children’s Book Review Blog and can also be found on Instagram @cinjoella and Goodreads
