Meet Meghan O’Keefe

Hello, my name is Meghan and I’m in Adult and Teen Services. Thanks for checking out my Book Spot recommendations! I love to read and watch things across all genres, but these tend to be my “go to” categories and represent me well. I grew up watching old movies with my Dad (I don’t think he is aware there are channels outside of Turner Classic Movies), so they are very nostalgic for me even though they are not really from my era. I have always been innately curious about the world around me, so I love to explore nonfiction. Most often, I dive into things connected to history or politics, but I fall down a weird rabbit hole with other random topics all the time! Ireland is my favorite place in the world. I’ve loved every visit there and I come from a giant, close knit Irish family that is very connected to our heritage, so anything related to Ireland still catches my attention and holds a special place in my heart. Lastly, I am a big fan of musicals and enjoy almost every one.  My one big splurge is always having Broadway in Chicago season tickets. I hope you’ll enjoy my picks and look forward to hearing any new recommendations from you as well!
