About meLibrarian, Baby Boomer, dreamer, activist, Still hoping to run away sometime, I remember Woodstock, Jimi Hendrix, Filmore East, and student strikes in 1970. Still working for peace.

About my libraryLiterary memoirs, especially contemporary women writers. Like to read food memoirs like MFK Fisher, Laurie Colwin, Ruth Reichl - also women's travel stories. Don't read much written by men but that's a reaction to too many years studying the pre-feminist "literature canon" Tastes still developing - I hope they always will be.
