About meI'm the associate news editor at Library Journal—I write library news, talk to library people, and will sing the praises of libraries endlessly, if you let me. Journalist, essayist, reviewer, visual artist, baker, Library & Information Science degree holder, lefty (politically, not handed), New Yorker, owner of a number of beasts.

Two sites: Like Fire, a mostly defunct book and review blog in partnership with the good folks over at Open Letters Monthly, and I'm senior editor of Bloom, a literary site about writers (and some other artists) who first published after age 40.

I still miss

About my libraryEclectic. I have a little fetish for trolling for used books from stores, library sales, church bazaars, and street vendors. Working at Library Journal means I get to drag home a LOT of books besides.
