Short Story Acceptance! "A Library on Wheels"

I received a short story acceptance in January (hooray!) for my creative nonfiction tale about a book mobile program in Georgia. I had a wonderful time interviewing the librarians who built the book mobile out of an old school bus for their public school district as well as one of the drivers and a school media specialist who brought kids onto the bus to get free books. As much fun as it was to see the children using the book mobile, there were already a lot of newspaper articles written about the end user experience. So I focused my story on the genesis of the idea, the creation of the program, and the conversion of the school bus. The story, "A Library on Wheels," will be published by the Greyrock Review, the undergraduate literary journal for Colorado State University, in May 2021.
