My name is Emma Carbone and I started Miss Print in August 2007 to share book reviews. Since then, the site has grown to include author interviews, book lists, and more. As a feminist, I try to always review books with a feminist lens–particularly with my weekly Chick Lit Wednesday reviews where I feature books with strong feminist themes and characters.
My blog is also an extension of my professional life where I work as a YA librarian where much of my work focuses on readers advisory where I read, recommend, and share books with both staff and patrons through library programs, trainings, and reference services. In addition to reviewing here on the blog my work can also be found at School Library Journal/Library Journal, and Washington Independent Review of Books.
I have a BA in English Language and Literature and minors in Art History, New York City Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies from Pace University. I have a Master’s of Science in Library and Information Science (with distinction) from Pratt SILS.
My posts here are my own and do not reflect the thoughts or opinions of anyone else, including my employer.
I am currently a member of ALA’s Rise Feminist Book Project committee.
I served as a member of YALSA’s 2015 Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults (PPYA) Committee and as a sub-committee chair on YALSA’s 2016 Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults Fairytales Retold list.
In 2010, 2011 and 2012 I also served as a Round 2 judge for the Cybils in either Young Adult Speculative Fiction or Young Adult Fiction.
