This week's Barbour employee interviewee brings laughter and sunshine to our editorial team. Allow me to introduce you to typesetter, Yolanda Chumney.
Job Assignment/Duties at Barbour:
As typesetter, my job responsibilities include the typesetting and laying out of the text for new and repackaged books, making all corrections from proofreaders, as well as making corrections to books going back to press as reprints.

I love to read, and I just finished The Kite Runner by Khaled Husseini
