An example of what Brooklyn Public Library calls “facilitators” is Janelle Greco, a Program Manager at LaGuardia Community College, a role in which she oversees a variety of programs aimed at helping adult learners advance their education. She hods a B.A. in English from Springfield College and an M.A. in English from Northeastern University. She has more than a decade of experience working in adult education, secondary and post-secondary settings as an instructor, curriculum designer, and program manager. Most of that time has been spent working with homeless and formerly incarcerated individuals.
The 1984 book discussion group is in various locations in the Brooklyn Public Library, including in the elegant and impressive Trustees’ Room on the third floor.
Remember, Big Brother is watching you!
