Edith Burney is the Youth/Teen Librarian at the Chelsea District Library in Chelsea, Michigan. She is an avid reader of comics, graphic novels and manga which allows her to relate easily with the kids and teens she serves in her job. Her strong desire to get kids interested in comics and further foster a love of reading prompted her to help develop Kids Read Comics.
The Kids Read Comics Convention is a free event that unites kids, teens, parents, teachers and librarians with professional artists and writers from the comics and animation fields. It’s also the sister event to the Up! Fair!
