Harriet Linskey

Harriet utilizes her 13 years growing Hands Across the Sea to support the Executive Director in expanding the reach and effectiveness of the Hands mission. Under Harriet’s leadership, Hands Across the Sea grew to serve more than 125,000 children and put half-a-million new books into more than 400 schools and community libraries. Harriet is a trained secondary education teacher with five years of experience teaching English, Journalism, and Art History in New Zealand and Japan. At a rural secondary school in New Zealand, Harriet led the refurbishment of a dismal library and saw firsthand how the addition of new and relevant books can inspire all levels of readers. Her passion and commitment to children and literacy have been felt around the world and is carried on through the work of Hands Across the Sea.
