Jennifer Forman is a librarian at the Snohomish Library and a fan of the Olympics.

Her interest prompted Forman to create a reading/viewing list of books, DVDs and online resources to enhance the experience of those not going to Pyeongchang, South Korea, for the Feb. 8-25 Winter Olympics.

While Forman’s list isn’t getting her to the Games, it did take her to KING-5 TV’s New Day Northwest show. Producers of the show saw Forman’s list on Facebook and asked her to come on down and join show host Margaret Larson on the set for a chat about the books.

“I’m just a fan of the Olympics,” Forman said, adding that summer or winter, it’s the Olympic spirit that attracts her to the Games.

Forman appeared on Jan. 31 on the show.
