Mentor: Library Resources, Nonfiction, and Children’s Books
A children’s librarian for more than 25 years, Judy Gann selects Christian fiction for a large library system in Washington State. The librarian for Library Insider, she also serves as a public library marketing consultant for Christian publishers and authors, assisting them in their marketing efforts to public libraries.
The author of The God of All Comfort: Devotions of Hope for Those Who Chronically Suffer (AMG), Judy lives in Lakewood, Washington, where, when she isn’t writing her first novel, speaking, or playing matchmaker for books and readers, she enjoys cheering for the Seattle Mariners, collecting children’s books, and taking long walks—even in the rain. Judy is also the manuscript coordinator for the conference and served on the Cascade Writing Contest & Awards Committee.
