Butler belongs on your “Must Read” list for 2023.

Bio — Wendy Bartlett has served as the Collection Development & Acquisitions Manager for Cuyahoga County Public Library since 2008. Wendy graduated from the Unitarian Universalist House of Studies with a Master of Divinity degree. She is involved with social justice issues including anti-racism and LGBTQ+ concerns.
