About meAn ever-molting black swan. Reader, writer, library director, over-enunciator. Listening + Unlearning. Opinions are my own. She/her. #BlackLivesMatter

About my libraryMy library is heavy on the poetry, speculative fiction, linguistics, and Iain Banks. For an excellent historical collection, please see my beloved FunkyPlaid's.
