About The Bloggers


Jennifer Childs
Jennifer Childs is the Vice President of Library Marketing at Penguin Random House. She has been with company for over 16 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 an 11-year-old and twin first graders, she is currently re-reading the Harry Potter series, this time with her kids.

She has been with the company for over thirteen years, working on both consumer advertising campaigns and marketing to librarians and patrons. Elizabeth can often be caught reading Lee Child’s latest thriller, self-help parenting guides, or any book that crafts a wonderful mother-daughter story.

Erica Melnichok
Erica Melnichok is a Senior Library Marketing Manager at Penguin Random House. It was her love for children’s and YA literature that drew her to a career in publishing. Her nine years of library marketing experience & passion for libraries led to her MLS degree in 2010! Her early years spent reading L.M. Montgomery, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Cynthia Voight evolved into a love of all things Jane Austen, historical fiction, and strong heroines worth rooting for in any number of genres. “As a teenager leaving for college, my mother suggested I consider librarianship. But I dismissed this sage advice, not realizing that my longstanding bookworm status could indeed lead to a career path. Lesson learned, mom does know best!”

Kelly Coyle Crivelli

She has spent the better part of her working life at Penguin Random House and never tires of talking about books that she loves or discovering unforgettable debut authors. She will read just about anything but has a particular fondness for audiobooks, books about Russia, and books that make her cry. Also, reading and rereading Pride and Prejudice is her guilty pleasure, but she doesn’t actually feel all that guilty about it.
