Alumni Luncheon of the Year!!!

That’s right! The event you wait for all year long is coming up in just a few weeks! This year’s luncheon will be held on Saturday, March 29, 2014 12:00pm in the Virginia Dare Room of the UNCG Alumni House. We have Justin Hoenke, teen librarian extraordinaire, as our speaker and we will be giving away the Kovacs Award to an amazingly deserving alumnus (or alumna)!

Our speaker, Justin Hoenke, is a teen librarian and video gaming enthusiast who has written about these subjects for publications such as Library Journal, Voices of Youth Advocates and is a regular contributor for the blog Tame The Web.  Justin is a member of the 2010 American Library Association Emerging Leaders class and was named a Library Journal Mover and Shaker in March 2013. Justin is currently the Manager of The 2nd Floor/Teen Specialist at the Chattanooga Public Library in Chattanooga, TN.  His professional interests include community building, working with teens in libraries, video games, and creative spaces.
