What's Gene Cochrane Reading?

This year, we welcomed four new members to the Library Foundation's board...and of course we asked what they're reading! Gene Cochrane shared what's on his bookshelf these days:   Unbelievable: My Front Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History, by Katy Tur The book is her account of being assigned to the Trump campaign and following the course of events until the election.

Karen Beach, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation’s deputy director, spearheads this effort with a finesse she attributes to equal parts experience, tenacity, gut instinct, luck and timing.
