Hey everyone! I’m Evan, and I’m the new Teen Librarian here in the Hub. I’m so excited to get to know all of you! Some fun facts about me:
 
 
• I like a good video game, but I’m usually a few years behind on those. What I really love are tabletop games, especially Dungeons & Dragons. Once you get me blabbering about the custom campaign I’m DMing for friends, it’s hard to get me to shut up about it.

• In addition to loving books, I’m also a huge nerd for movies and music. I love talking about the biggest blockbuster or indie band, and always want to hear about your new discoveries.
 
• I love traveling and eating weird food. From black tea ice cream to scotch eggs to bone marrow to basil donuts, I want to go to all of the places and eat all of the things.
