ARTIST SUBMITTED BIO
Beth Golay serves as KMUW's Director of Marketing and Digital Content. She is also host of the KMUW podcast, Marginalia.
She is the founder and editor of Books & Whatnot, providing marketing support to bookstores around the world through her newsletter and website.

In fact, she represented Watermark as the KMUW book review commentator for 2 years while she was at the bookstore.
Beth's favorite genre is literary fiction, but she also loves creative non-fiction and reading the classics she should have attempted a long time ago. Her greatest reading accomplishment is a toss-up: Reading four books in one weekend (documented in January 2004) or completing the 1438 pages of Dumas’ The Count of Monte Cristo.
Beth is a founding member of the Ginger Rabbits art group and her work has been on exhibit in Wichita and Kansas City. She was the 2016-17 KMUW Pledge Drive artist with this work, SciFri25.
In addition to "reader" and "artist" you can include "runner" to her interest list. Beth is currently trying to run a marathon in every state. She has a long way to go.
