About meI'm a pretty indiscriminate reader, though I tend to read more fiction than nonfiction. My favorite things are reading and making things, mostly clay, but drawings and mixed media. I love animals, nature, gardening, cooking, and mythology and religions. I love to talk about books of course,so please comment or email!

About my libraryPretty eclectic. Not all my books are listed, just favorites and most memorable. Also, some listed I no longer own, but are memorable. I'm not into which volume, publication dates, just whats inside. Same with covers, I'm choosing my favorites, not necessarily the ones I own.

Noticed you liked She's Come Undone, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed young girl's downward spiral and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


Well, how about that. I bought that Lana Wilson book at the Arrowmont Store about 4 years ago, when I was there for the Utilitarian Clay Symposium and she was a presenter. Have you taken a class with her? Pretty interesting woman.

I'm Head of the Architecture & Fine Arts Library at the University of Florida. Great place to marry my interests. Librarianship is good at that. A lot of people come to it after experience in other fields. Makes for an interesting group of colleagues. I guess my one piece of advice would be to gain as much actual library experience as you can while you're in school. Jobs, internships, practicums,'s all good. Some universities have assistantships in the library (as opposed to working for the school/professors) and this is very good. I did this at University of South Carolina. 20 hours a week on the reference desk for a year. VERY good experience. Oh and also, if you decide to specialize, there are many organizations, and most have student rate memberships. Art Libraries Society of North America ( has student memberships and offers funded internships and other opportunities for students. They have regional chapters also, which is a good place to meet people and network. There are lots of these smaller orgs, depending on what you're interested in...and most are not so overwhelming as ALA.

Best of luck, and glad to know another bibliophile potter :) --Ann
Hey, I just got your message. Sorry I haven't been on this for a while. I finished my MLIS at Pitt in August 2007. I am now working as a children's librarian part-time and subpool clerk for Carnegie Library. I worked full-time at the univeristy, WPIC Library and went to school part-time. I think I would have preferred to go to school full-time but the job helped pay for it so it was worth the extra time. It only takes a year to complete so it will go by fast! If you can, do an internship/field placement your last semester. It can help you get a job, especially if you want to work in the Pittsburgh area. What area are you interested in? Public/Academic/Archives. I knew I wanted to work with the public and especially children/teens so I took all the classes they offered relating to that. The only options you really need to specialize in are school librarian and archives, otherwise you can just take what you are interested in. Any questions my email is Good Luck! Jen
