Comfort Literature for Spartans

Karlene Noel Jennings
Do you have a favorite book that brings you peace when things are chaotic? Books and authors that serve as solace in times of uncertainty -- comfort lit if you will.

If you do, we'd love to hear from you. Share a photo of your favorite comfort lit(erature) with us! A selfie of you with a book cover on your e-reader works great, too! Email us at and tag us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by using #ComfortLit4Spartans.

We will plan to share your photos across social media and in the next issue of Library Columns. For now, read about Karlene Jennings's favorite comfort lit.

"My favorite comfort literature is 'Our Town' by Thorton Wilder, which brings me back to growing up in a small town and valuing that sense of community," Karlene Noel Jennings, executive director of advancement and external relations, University Libraries. #ComfortLit4Spartans
