Betty Jo Barrett
Betty Jo Barrett is an Associate Professor at the University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada. When she isn’t daydreaming about thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, you can find her in a classroom talking to young people about gender, sexuality, and social justice.
She is drawn to contemporary Young Adult novels with characters that are complicated, quirky, and scrappy, if not always likeable. Her favorite books are honest, funny, maybe a little disturbing, but ultimately beautiful. You can find out more about her academic work at https://expertfile.com/experts/bettyjo.barrett.
