Kelly Coyle Crivelli - Library Marketing Manager, Random House
Kelly Coyle Crivelli is a Library Marketing Manager at Random House, Inc. She started her career at Random House back in 1998 when the library marketing “team” consisted of only two people and there was not yet such a thing as a blog! And after nearly a decade away, she returned to Random House in 2012 and is very happy to be reunited with the incredible titles and authors that Random House offers, having missed them very much over the years. Kelly will read just about anything- but has a particular fondness for books that make her cry- (Richard Russo always gets her!) and of course, finds nothing as enjoyable as the way Jane Austen can depict a character.
