Linda has been a bookseller at The Bookstore for over 10 years. She is a former first grade teacher, and has been a substitute teacher and an editorial staff member of The Wheaton Daily Journal. Currently, she is member of the library staff at Edison MIddle School in Wheaton, where she helps challenge the avid readers and encourages the hesitant ones. Linda says she's always been a bookworm and always has a book with her. If she's not reading fiction, biographies, historical fiction, or Caudill nominees, she's promoting books and reading, especially to young people. Having recently become a grandma, she is eager to begin reading to her grandchildren. She can be found at The Bookstore on most Saturdays.
