According to her mother, Liz has been reading voraciously since the moment she figured out that those little squiggles on the page meant something. Owner of The Learned Owl from 1983 until 2013, after having dozens of jobs in dozens of places all over the country.
Liz reads mostly fiction, but all kinds - thrillers, women's fiction, mysteries. Some favorites over the past years (and still worth reading) include The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay, The Highest Tide by Jim Lynch, Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn, Gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson, Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher (young adult), Run with the Horsemen by Ferrol Sams, Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea (reading level), Lottery by Patricia Wood, The Help by Kathryn Stockett, Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay, Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man by Fannie Flagg, The Turtle Warrior by Mary Relindes Ellis, and Kill Me by Stephen White.
Liz recommends: Fabulous book. A perfect summer read, with history and romance blended in two tales of two women in love and struggling to find their own voices, a century apart.
