Virtual Trainers: Julie Rekow with Steve Lambert and Neil Sindicich

Julie Rekow is a teen library associate from the Beaches Branch of the Jacksonville Public Library. Originally an artist and librarian from Minnesota, she migrated to the Florida beaches 5 winters ago and never left. Her love of reading and libraries inspires her to create big parties that celebrate fandoms with lots of props and entertainment.



Steve Lambert’s writing has appeared in both print and electronic journals, most recently in The Cortland Review, Red River Review, and MadHat Lit. He is a three-time finalist in contests held by Glimmer Train Stories. He works in a library in St. Johns County and is a graduate student, in writing, at the University of Texas, El Paso.


Neil Sindicich is the owner of the Superhero Hive comic book store located near the Beaches Branch Library.  They have partnered for 3 years in a row holding co-events.
