Hi. I am Zack Barnes, and welcome to A to Z Book Reviews. I am a special education teacher at Metro Nashville Public Schools, and I am a recent PhD graduate from the Literacy Studies program at MTSU. Starting in August 2019, I will be an Assistant Professor of Teaching and Learning at Austin Peay State University. Now that I am no longer working on a dissertation, I have much more time to read!

zack profile 2I will be reviewing a lot of a middle grade (MG) and young adult (YA) fiction. I read a lot of these books so that I can personally recommend those books to my students. I’ll also be reviewing a wide variety of books that I read, including nonfiction and spy thrillers.

I am also a freelance writer interested in education, science, politics and interviews. My writings have appeared in The Tennessean, Education Post, Nashville Scene, Memphis Daily News, Chapter 16, and Nashville Ledger.
