The mission of the Penguin Random House Library Marketing Department is to put great books and audiobooks into the hands of librarians before they are published, as well as to provide resources to assist with Readers’ Advisory, Event Programming, and Book Club planning.
Jennifer Childs is the Vice President of Library Marketing at Penguin Random House. She has been with company for over 20 years and in that time has worked with many amazing authors and read numerous bestsellers . . . before they were bestsellers. She loves being able to share new writers and her favorite books with other readers and can’t think of a more perfect group of people to book chat with than librarians. The mother of 3 teenagers, she is currently reading books on stress management and anything that transports her to an alternate reality.
Liz Camfiord, Library Marketing Manager, has worked for Penguin Random House for more than 25 years with booksellers and librarians. She earned her B.A. in English Literature from U.C.

Kelly Coyle Crivelli has been back with the Penguin Random House Library Marketing team since 2008. Originally starting at PRH in 1998 before blogs and webinars even existed.

Sharnell Johnson is a Marketing Manager at Penguin Random House. She loves that her job involves two of her favorite things: reading books and talking about books! If you spot her in the wild, she will most likely be listening to an audiobook. Approach her slowly so as not to startle her!
Rachel Tran is an Associate Marketing Manager at Penguin Random House. She studied broadcast journalism at the University of Florida where she fed a lifelong love of storytelling and swampy things that go bump in the night.

With a degree in English and Creative writing, it was always her dream to work in publishing—and she has now had the honor of working in Library Marketing for 10 years.

Jennifer Rubins is the Associate Director of Library Marketing, specializing in audio, and has been listening to audiobooks since she learned to read (turning the page when she heard the chimes!).

She won an AudioFile Earphones Award for her narration of And Then We Grew Up by Rachel Friedman. Jen has worked at PRH for a lucky 13 years where it’s always a thrill to bring her passion for books, actors, and storytelling all together and connect with libraries and listeners!
