A special thank you to Mock Workshop Coordinator Taylor Worley of Springfield Public Library and her committee: Susan Davis of Josephine Community Library District, Kate Carter of Multnomah County Library, and Alec Chunn of Eugene Public Library (pictured above, left to right). We'd also like to thank our prestigious panelists MaryKay Dahlgreen, Steven Engelfried, Martín Blasco, and Heather McNeil for sharing their experiences and modeling book discussion.
