Betsy Prouty

Betsy Friday of Pgh. Pa, a child of the 50's, grew up in a family of readers.  Each Tuesday night, my family visited The Carnegie Library where Miss Russell treated us like we were VIP's. She is my heroine. Flash forward through an English Lit major from Wittenberg University and marriage to Bill Prouty, you'll find me with 3 children and careers in Teaching, Real Estate Sales and Organization.
2014: My husband's job brought us to Salt Lake. With the gift of time, I can pursue my interests. Plain and simple, I always wanted to work in a Library or Bookstore. Being part of The King's English community is a joyful and interesting opportunity for me. I'm surrounded by talented fun booksellers, well-chosen books and interesting customers. There is nothing not to love.
