About the Author

Amanda Wentworth is a senior English major at the State University of New York at Geneseo.

Originally from Syracuse, New York, Amanda came to SUNY Geneseo in Fall 2014, and it promptly became┬áher second home. She has taken a keen interest in the local history and community, interning and volunteering for the Livingston County Historical Society, as well as working closely with the local senior community “Geneseo Young at Heart.” Amanda is an avid Medievalist, and is grateful to both the Social Life of Books professors for developing a course that allowed its students freedom to explore all kinds of final project options, and to Milne Library, for keeping such beautiful books that hearken back to medieval style.
