Renaissance Woman: A Portrait of Carolyn Brodie
Kenney, Brian
School Library Journal, v54 n8 p28-31 Aug 2008
In this article, the author profiles Carolyn Brodie, winner of this year's Scholastic Library Publishing Award. One can be completely charmed by Brodie's soft-spoken Arkansas accent, warm demeanor, and genteel manners. While the graciousness is authentic, the woman behind it is fearless, with a clear vision for youth services, remarkable tenacity, unmatchable energy, and an incredibly strong work ethic. Add to these a deep knowledge of children's literature, an enthusiasm for technology, expertise in both school and public libraries, and a terrific dedication to the professionals who work with kids and one will begin to understand the woman who--over the past 20 years--has launched a renaissance in school, children's, and young adult services in the state of Ohio. Brodie grew up in England, Arkansas, and is now a professor at Ohio's Kent State University School of Library and Information Science (SLIS).
