Geek Week Planning Assembly

I’m Emily and I’m a Master’s of Library & Information Studies graduate student and Intern at the UWM Libraries.  As you might have guessed, I geek fiction!  I love to read fantasy series especially, but also really enjoy literary classics, sci-fi, historical fiction and murder mysteries.  I particularly love the King Killer Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss and Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen.  I am an old soul, so I also geek out about theatre, costumes, ancient/medieval History, crafting and old Hollywood movies.  I am excited about Geek Week because I think it is a great way for everyone to reveal their inner geekiness, meet new people and have fun!  This year I am particularly excited to attend the Pixar illustrator speaker and do some Karaoke with Rhythmic.  I am thrilled to host and design my very first event for Geek Week, which will be an Escape Room at the UWM Golda Meir Library.
