Mary L. Fahrenbruck


Mary L. Fahrenbruck is an associate professor at New Mexico State University where she teaches pre-service and in-service teachers about the significance of reading aloud to children. Her goal is to familiarize university students with picturebooks and novels that feature characters, settings and experiences that reflect the historical and current lives of children living in New Mexico and the Borderlands region of the United States.
