June 03 For fans of AQUAMAN, Intern Matt recommends...!

Intern Matt here! Kelly Sue recently met up with a group of dedicated librarians at the NYC Library Journals Day of Dialogue 2019. We know that librarians certainly don’t need us to help them find more information on the books they love, but we thought everyone else might like to delve into some additional reading– particularly for fans of Kelly Sue’s AQUAMAN “Unspoken Water” arc!
