Suzan Alteri joined the iSchool this month as assistant director of the Center for Children's Books (CCB). In her new position, she will foster cross-campus and community collaborations around youth media and literature, teach courses on children's literature, and manage the day-to-day operations of the CCB.
Prior to joining the School, Alteri served as librarian for the Arne Nixon Center for the Study of Children's Literature at Fresno State University in Fresno, California. She previously served as curator of the Baldwin Library of Historical Children's Literature at the University of Florida. Alteri holds an MLIS and archival certification from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, and a BA in history from Kalamazoo College.
"I am looking forward to building the next phase of the Center for Children's Books with Director Sara Schwebel, engaging with students through teaching and research, and bringing the rich knowledge of the Center to the largest possible audience," said Alteri.
In her free time, Alteri enjoys reading, taking walks, and playing board games and trivia.
