Jessica Anne Liddell was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago. She attended VanderCook College of Music achieving her Bachelor’s of Art in Music Education. She earned her MLS at Indiana University in Bloomington. She has traveled to quite a few places, but mostly keeps her head in a book. She was hired by the Grand Rapids Public Library and has gone to firmly establish herself in the library world. When she isn’t reading, you can find her teaching music or advocating for transliteracy in libraries on a social network. Frankly, if you must know, it was her music skills which woo’d Tom.
