About Donna B

Hi! My main hangout in the Library is the Teen Underground, but you'll find me wandering all over the building. Originally from Northeast Iowa, I've lived in the Chicago area long enough that people don't tell me I sound like a character from "Fargo" anymore. I geek out on ginger ale and black licorice, Pottermore sorted me into Slytherin, and if I were a dog I'd be a shiba inu.

    Hello Niles Library Folk — After reading a fascinating story about this book in the newspaper, I created a page about it inviting visitors to leave their own six-word sentences. If you would like to read it and possibly leave your six-word sentence, you can find it at am guessing you’ve already given some thought to the topic so adding your six-word sentence should not be hard! I hope you’ll visit…
