About meI am a performer and instructor of Egyptian Raqs Sharqi. I am also a commercial illustrator. I am very interested in seeing what other people read. Many times friends have opened doors for me by suggesting books I may not have picked up on my own.

About my libraryThe Brooklyn Public Library is where this love affair with books began.

The books in my Library are ones I would glady read again and again. Many are used as reference material. All of the titles listed I do have on my shelves.

I love looking through used books with marginalia! "You can learn something about your fellow human beings from what they write in the margin." —from Smilla's Sense of Snow by Peter Høeg
