Hello Rocket family, students, and visitors,
I received a Masters in Library Science from the University of South Carolina and a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from Winthrop University, in Rock Hill. I have always loved reading and have read and loved books voraciously since I first entered school. Before I became a librarian, I worked in book retail and within library special collections (rare book archives). My favorite genres to read are Mystery and Science Fiction.
In 1918, Elsie Wright and her cousin Frances Griffith photographed fairies in their garden, in the small village of Cottingley (Yorkshire). Without expecting it, many people paid attention—including renowned writer and spiritualist Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This is the story, narrated by Elsie herself, of the true events that led to the Cottingley Fairies becoming a international phenomenon.
